Pinned It, Made It! Monday

 I made this lemon tart for my husband who is a big lemon fan, for Valentine's day. I on the other hand, am not,---- it's all about the chocolate for me!  I, of course wait till the night before to look at recipes and this one looked good and I had everything on hand.

 I love to make rag quilts because they always get finished, unlike a KU quilt I have waiting to be free motioned quilted. This one was made for a birthday gift for a friend of Jaime's. I pinned this one on Pinterest and there was no directions so I plowed on ahead.  I cut 10-inch squares cotton for the front and flannel on the back. The strip squares I had to play around with to fit right, I also added on because it wasn't long or wide enough.  I love the batiks! The one I pinned, the squares were bigger and I like the size of it but I was using leftovers and couldn't make mine as big.

Amy wanted to make butterfly valentines--- we did a combination of two we pinned, this is our version.

Don't forget to check out Tammy and all the other posts on Pinned It, Made It! Monday.
