February Love Basket Block

This February Basket block is part of my Wooly Basket Calendar Quilt.  The pattern is from the Starry Pines Pattern Company:
I used wool for the hand-appliqued basket, cotton flannel for the background fabric, and black perle cotton for the embroidery.

Tutti Frutti Lovesong                                

You are my darling CUMQUAT                               
     Oh, you’re my PEACHy pie,                    
I think you are the BERRIES,                  
     The APPLE of my eye.                           

Don’t make me MELON-choly,                 
     Please be my HONEY DEW,                   
‘Cause oh, my sweet PAPAYA,                
   I’m BANANAs over you.                                                                         
I would be oh, so GRAPEful          
     If you’d just say you care,
For it takes two to MANGO,         
     And we’re a PEACHy PEAR.         
Oh, ORANGE you a little              
     COCONUTS for me too?                       
Please say you’ll be mon CHERRY,
     I’m so GUAVA over you.
