Happy Valentine's Day!

I won't see my sweetie - he's got all day and overnight duty at his mom's, but he knows I'm thinking of him.

Sister Quilts

A couple years ago I bought charm packs to make quilts for my sister and myself. I finished mine in 2015, and finally finished hers last night. I started it the week before Christmas, and while I had a feeling I wouldn't get it done in time for the holiday, I did manage to finish the top so I had something to wrap.
 
The one I finished last year was originally intended for her - but it went so well with my living room colors, I kept it for myself. Her quilt is on the left, mine on the right. I took her quilt top to the fabric store, and had a little trouble finding a print that would complement all the colors of the top. Turns out I picked the same fabric as my backing, but a different colorway. 
 
Here's a link to information about the moda fabrics I used:
 
Addendum: Now that this project is done, I broke down and took the Bernina in for some routine maintenance. Out comes the old Viking, which I haven't used in a long time...and it still sews!
