Answer All Invitations That Ask You to RSVP!!  DARLING!!!!!  I picked this one when I started reading the instructions...okay okay, looking at the pictures at how easy this quilt comes together and it looks complicated to anyone else with its design!   Love it!!! So start pickin those fabrics and sew!

And now the Parade....Oh the lovelies.....grab that cuppa joe or tea and sit back and enjoy the show!!!

Here is mine....I chose valentine colors to grace my table, then I made doilies out of lace and topped them with a brown yoyo, you'll have to enlarge the photo to see the lace under the yoyo' me it looked like those wrappers in a box of chocolates! lol  on my display I added the valentines treat bags I made in this post Valentine treat bags.

Vivian from Iowa made two versions this one in Reds....I Heart this one
