My first finish of the year
I finally completed the cute little heart wall hanging that Cheri Payne has as a free pattern here on her blog in January 2015. I pieced it the first year, I embroidered it last year, and this year I decided to do some ridiculously simple machine quilting so that it would finally become a finish.
I just put it on the back on one of my checkered chairs in the living room to add a little Valentine flair. I've got another small red & white quilt (Jo Morton Little Women 11) on the other chair.
I thought about binding it with red but when I came across this little gem of a piece with tiny hearts on it - the decision was made. Too Cute!!!
I'm still working along (rather slowly) on the right panel of the Roseville Quilt by Kim Mclean. I've got about 1/3 of the applique done. This panel is 3 ft. long so it will still be awhile before it's finished. That bright pink wing in the middle might need a replacement. I'll wait till I'm all done and see if it still shouts, "LOOK AT ME!"
I'm linking up with Kathy at Slow Sunday Stitching. Go check it out.
