Valentine's Day Dwell and Moda Candy: A Finish It Up Friday Edition

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!  It's funny because I do love the idea of Valentine's Day, the colors, and lets not forget the chocolate.  I mentioned on Wednesday that I was working on it and showed it to you, so I apologize for the repetition.  I did finished quilting and binding it though.  I went with some meandering lines with hearts on the background and then some other various free motion quilting on the houses.  The quilting isn't great but that is what I get for being in a hurry.  I went pretty minimal on the center house because I did not want to take away from the fabric, plus I might have been a little lazy as well!  
I also went scrappy on the binding because I thought it would look cute and I had some strips left over from piecing the houses that I wanted to use up.  I like how it turned out and I know I said it before but I am seriously loving my pieced heart on the middle house.
The only other holiday Dwell I have made for our wall is the Christmas version.  If you don't remember it, here it is.
Now I just need to make one for the next holiday, I guess that would be St. Patrick's Day.  That would be fun because my favorite color is green and I just got this fabulous green print from the Ruby collection by Bonnie and Camille.  Ah, the possibilities!
Lastly, I wanted to mention that we are giving away free Moda candy (mini charm pack) with each order $25 or more in our Etsy shop today for Valentine's Day!  
You can use the link at top of the right side of this post to take you to the Etsy shop and no coupon code is necessary.  Thanks for checking out my post today and I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day today and a wonderful weekend.
