Greetings, friends! Today is my day for sharing in the Hearts on Fire Blog Hop, hosted by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt!! Thank you, Carol, for hosting this fun hop…just in time for Valentine’s Day next month! This project also inches me a little closer to my PHD in 2021!
I actually started this project several years ago and I guess it was waiting to be completed at such a time as this! It’s hearts and varying colors of pink scraps and borders. What’s not to love? This is my version of February’s quilt from Calendar Quilts by Kim Schaefer. Her borders are pieced but I chose to use solid borders. Now is the perfect time to complete it! I present to you Heart of my Hearts! If you click through the slide show, you can see some of the quilting. I must admit, I am SO rusty as I haven’t touched my longarm in months, so forgive all the boo-boos and the angled photo (as well as one string I forgot to cut), please!
The only thing left to do is bind it. Unfortunately, I did not have enough scrap fabric for that, but it will get done and added to my PHD list!! Oh darn, a trip to my LQS!! Instead of a calendar, I’ll be using mine as a table runner/topper. Hey, it can serve double duty and I will add a hanging sleeve when I tire of it being on the table!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll also be linking up to the Table Scraps Challenge with The Joyful Quilter, and maybe some other of my favorite linkies!
