A Valentine Quilt For You To Make That Wraps Hearts In Chains.
A girl asked a boy if she was pretty, he said “No”. She asked him if he wanted to be with her forever, he said “No”. Then she asked him if he would cry if she walked away, he said “No”. She had heard enough; she needed to leave.
As she walked away he grabbed her arm and told her to stay. He said “You’re not pretty, you’re beautiful. I don`t want to be with you forever, I need to be with you forever. And I wouldn’t cry if you walked away, I would die.”
So now the next thing to do is make this delightful heart in chains quilt to add to your romantic Valentines Day decor. Hearts are floating and then captured and wrapped in 2 1/2″ chain squares.
