Finished Hearts

Heart Quilt Tutorial

I’ve been in a bad habit of making quilt tops and tucking them away into the black hole that is my closet.   My church was asking for quilt donations last week so it was good motivation to finish up some tops and give them new homes. 

This quilt is from my Heart Quilt Tutorial I wrote in January.  There is also a tutorial here for making hearts in multiple sizes. 

Finished Heart Quilt

I gave this one a quick quilt job with stippling in the middle and loopty loops around the borders.  By the look of those borders I think I need some more practice with those…or maybe I need to slow down since I love to quilt fast!

Pretty fabric stack

These are my latest fabric buys and I can’t bear to cut them up until I have the perfect plan.  Most of these are from Tiger Lilly by Heather Ross in stores now, and the top two are from Hello Darling also in stores now. 

I hope you have a great Monday!

    Those little hearts are so adorable, and just the right colors, they make we want to eat some conversation hearts :)
