I've been working on these little wheel blocks and finished the 12th one on Monday. I think that I have enough for the wall hanging I want. I was going to put red circles in the center to cover up where all the wedges come together but I think I like orange better. So, I made the circles today and will sew them on this week. I'll trim behind it and then it will lay flat. One step at a time.
I finished the echo quilting on the "Love Letters" quilt. I really like how it turned out but it took me four weeks to complete. There are different shades of color because I pieced different fabrics together to make the backgrounds. I need to send more time in front of my floor hoop or I'll be working on this all year - sigh We've had quite low temps and so it's cold in the room I quilt in. I need to get wrapped up and brave the 20 degrees days.
When I spread out the quilt for a picture I thought it looked really well with the rest of the decor in the room. I love my little churn dash quilt (a Kim Deihl pattern) and always get it out for the month of February.
I've been trying to come up with an idea for little Valentine gifts and this heart is what I came up with on Monday. The center heart is embroidered onto a piece of white with fusible fleece on the underside. I'm not sure if I'll quilt it or stuff it.
Happy Groundhog's Day,
