I Heart.......

Hi I'm not sure if it's because Valentines Day is nearly upon us but hearts seem to feature in quite alot of my recent sewing.

Like this heart block. Another common feature seems to be a red and pink combination, I just love it. Then the heart block led on to a mini (really mini) quilt for a project I've had on my mind for ages but more on that another time.

 It measures just 8" square and I added some circular free motion quilting in addition to the stippling.
And finally............ this is going to be a cushion cover. I hand stamped the Roxy Music song track with some Versacraft ink and used handstitching to quilt and look, that red and pink combination again. Told you I loved it!

I'm visiting from a link on Alexa's blog and am very glad I did. Your heart block and mini quilt are gorgeous. I'm embarking on my first full size quilt and thought that blogging about it would keep me motivated!
