traditions popular in Victorian times. Much easier to stitch by machine than it
was by hand, exquisite details come alive in Romantic

hanging, or a full-sized quilt with Romantic

Heart, My Love from Kreations
by Kara is a clever arrangement of love in all colors, shapes, and sizes.
It really pops on black and would look classy on a shirt.
