Hearts on Fire: Blog Hop

Carol, from Just Let Me Quilt, posted about this blog hop way back in December. I figured I had lots of time and signed up right away.

Here’s what she said about the challenge:
Make something with a heart in any color, BUT NOT RED…get creative! It can be big or small, in a quilt, a bag, or whatever.

SEW … what to do? I knew I wanted to make a donation baby quilt. I had a pattern in mind I went through my stash and nothing was talking to me … until, I pulled this panel from the bin and it clearly said, “Cut me up.”

This had become a “What was I thinking?” panel. A good one to cut into. I needed (20) 6″ squares and (10) half-square triangles … should be easy … right? Well, when you’re thinking it’s 10 squares … it can become a problem. But, I managed, even if the squares and HST are not all fussy cut to my liking … it’s good. It’s cut!

And this is the result! I used a ruler from Silly Moon called Cupid and made 3″ and 6″ hearts all over the quilt. It was fun to make … and I enjoyed practicing my ruler quilting.

  5. I think we’ve all bought one or two “what was I thinking” fabrics, but you managed to make this into a beautiful quilt. It shows the love and it has some playful characters to look at…love it! The fabric is really cute, so I’m glad you used it for this because it’s adorable. Thank you for sharing your no-red heart! xo

  6. I love your quilt–the way the panel cut up is great! and the quilting, using the rulers–awesome! I really like the way the quilted hearts touch each other so you don’t have to keep starting and stopping all the time. Thanks for sharing!

  7. That’s great, Gail! I don’t think it matters at all that everything isn’t perfectly fussy cut centered blocks. The panel made a wonderful heart landscape anyway. The quilting is the icing on the cake.
