Yes, Valentine's Day was a week ago and I'm still sewing heart projects. ;o)
Want to see my late, but very loved finish?
I took those scrappy patchwork heart blocks and joined them using a variety of solids ranging from the lightest pinks to red and threw in a shot of purple for good measure.
I even sneaked some piecing and some purple onto the back,
along with a shot of dots (cause all of my projects get a shot of dots ;o).
|I meander quilted inside all the heart blocks with a variegated thread and stitched loops all over the backgrounds in light pink thread for some whimsy.|
This crazy, long runner (which was tricky to photograph due to its size and colours) is specially sized to fit our antique buffet that resides in our living room.
I'm just smitten with the colours in this runner so much. I love reds and pinks together! You guessed it, I won't be waiting until next Valentine's Day before using this. We need a shot of colour to counteract the Winter Blues, right? ;o)
