Heart finished

So at the retreat last weekend, I learned how to close the binding into a continuous loop, something I had never done before.  My first project to use it on, was the heart I made for our missionaries wife!  It’s her favorite colors.  I am sending it down next month with folks going to visit them, as mail is virtually nonexistent and 100% unreliable where they are.

First up is a picture of the small hearts I quilted into the corners.  Remember I pieced and quilted it all by hand.

Then a little shot with the backing I used.  This is mostly fabric I got at JoAnns with my Christmas gift card, and a little from the LQS tossed in.

And finally, the finished heart.  Which I could not take a picture of outside today, as it decided to snow last night.  Augh I’m ready for Spring to stay around and not tease us with a few days in the 60s then snow, this is the second time it’s happened this month.

Hope she likes it.  It is table topper size.  Linking up at Confessions of a Fabric AddictCrazy Mom Quilts.

Such a sweet quilt. The colors are so warm and inviting. It will sure brighten up the area where it will be displayed. Beautiful.

Thank you, she has a house full of boys, so I think she might like a little girly touch.

Thank you, as I worked on it at the Quilt Retreat, several ladies mentioned it was a labor of love. I hope it is accepted as such.
