This is what I made this morning, blue heart with Oriental theme. After I pieced the front I stitched over it using Sashiko style stitching. It is for a gift, but I can't tell you at the moment for whom I'm making it for. If you would like a pattern for this heart please leave me a comment on this post and I will sent you a PDF copy of it. Make sure you leave your email address where I can reach you.
UFO project I started last year. When I saw this vintage cookie cutter heart shape at Blackbird Designs I had to start one too. If you are looking for a hearty project to make for Valentine's Day there is a free pattern on the above link to download. Thanks Barb and Alma for your generosity.
If you get the blues, this is a perfect project to start. It's another of my UFO that I only have to put a border on and it will be ready to quilt. I went through the blues in my life and starting this quilt had helped me a lot "Quilt Heals". Sorry no pattern for this one. I made it up as I went...!
It is Valentine season after all. I thought I would show you the first heart quilt I ever made. I made this quilt before I became a quilter. I found the American Country Folk Crafts book at my children's school fate. The cover attracted me and after looking inside I ended up buying it. I didn't know how to appliqué or anything, but my sewing skills came in handy at times.
I didn't have quilting fabrics either, but I had lot of leftover Liberty and other fabrics from my dress making so I used them for the hearts. The background fabric was weaved by my friend's mother in the North East of Thailand. It's 100% homespun silk. I love this quilt and I use it sometimes as a table throw.
I know that signing up for the Valentine Sewing Party would makes me bring out my UFOs to think about finishing them SOON! Thanks to Kelly and Joan for organizing this fun event; I throughly enjoyed it.
