Latest Project

I've been working on a new quilt lately - for some time really.  It's going to be a mini quilt - probably a wall hanging.  I'd like to share some pictures with you but I'm not going to  tell all about it until I get it finished.  That way it will be more of a surprise. :)
I saw this heart block on my Facebook feed one day.  It was posted by Aurifil thread.  I love Aurifil thread and have been using it for several months for just about all my sewing.  Anyhoo, they have a free patterns area on their website and that's where this heart block was located.  As soon as I saw it, I had to immediately drop what I was doing and start working on this patchwork block. 
Here's a red one:

 And a yellow one:
 Could there be more?  You bet!

Here are a couple of teaser pictures of the backing for the quilt.  One thing I discovered while piecing this together was that I really like improv piecing.  I think I might have to try that soon on a whole quilt.
 My pretty red tulips that I got for Mother's day.  I also got a box of Godiva chocolates, Dark Chocolate assortment which are delicious.  But I didn't take a picture of those.  My sweet hubby made me breakfast in bed - French toast.  Yum!
Next post is about why I love Modern quilting.  Stay tuned!


Thanks so much for reading my blog and leaving a comment. I read every comment and try to reply to most of them although it may take me a couple of days - I'm a bit slow.
