Monday, February 7

What's on the line?

I've got another sweet look at warmer weather for all of you! And because it's nearing Valentine's Day, I had to share this little heart-themed quilt..............

This is the February quilt from the series that I made in 2000 to celebrate the Millennium. I love hearts and plaids and combined the two in this piece. I drew hearts in all shapes and sizes then appliqued them to all shapes and sizes of squares and rectangles. I embroidered and blanket-stitched around all the hearts, pieced the blocks together, and then hand-quilted the little quilt (it's about 20" x 24"). I call it "Crazy for Hearts", of course!
Things are still busy around here. I'm not posting real regularly but soon will. There is stuff to blog about, just other stuff taking my time. :-)
Have a great Monday!!
Sandi
