My goal was to have my ‘Hearts’ quilt completed for Valentine’s day. Finished it just in the nick of time. I am still unsure about a border but the quilt top is done and fits perfectly in my office cube.



What do you think? Should I add a skinny inner border of the medium pink and then a larger border using the print fabric in the quilt? Do you have other suggestions?

How are your projects coming along?

Hard to believe that it is almost the middle of November. Where are the days going? I finished up the garden winterizing and ready for alot more quilting time. Here is what I am working on.
Charm pack Newest project – I have had this charm pack forever. It is lovely and it is time to make something. I have been pondering the X Plus block. I have seen MANY quilts on-line that are beautiful. I really like the design but these fabrics are needing a more simple design. What if I just use the snowball block. Hmmm….

Hearts Hearts – I decided that I needed a small quilt to hang in my office cube for Valentine’s day. Once I found Cluck Cluck Sew’s tutorial ‘Simple Hearts’ I fell in love with the simplicity of the block. I know that I already have bunches of projects that I am working on but I am anxious to play. Love the colors. I am thinking that most of the hearts will be small but will add a few bigger ones. Aren’t these blocks adorable?

Uneven 9 patch Batik – Quarter Log Cabin. I have made some great progress on putting this quilt together. I have the blocks sewn into rows and now putting the rows together into pairs.

Honeycomb Honeycomb – the quilt top is almost done. I just need to finish putting the rows together. I wasn’t sure how I would like working with hexagons. There are a little fussy to sew together but the quilt is well worth the extra effort.

Leader/Enders 2015 Leaders & Enders – Getting close to finishing the 80 blocks for the quilt center. Only need 19 more blocks so I started cutting the squares and rectangles for the border.
