    Oh my gosh I think that is really pretty don't know what it's called but I'd call it a wedding ring love....with those hearts sets it off great...I made a quilt that I did a mistake on didn't catch it till I had the blocks done,,,well the quilting gals I quilted with never even noticed till I pointed it out...and when I did they said they thought it was made that way cause it was on all the blocks...so thats my two cents and I'm sticking to it!! :thumbup:

    Have you ever worked with the gridded fusible interfacing or stabilizer. I just bought some at Walmart with 2 1/2 in grids. you cut your fabric into squares the size of the grid square and you can make a landscape or water color quilt. The flannel might make a nice outdoor/ woodsy scene.

    I'm calling it "My Heart's Home" since that was part of their wedding vows, and the hearts point towards the center. You are all so encouraging, I think I'll plug along and start two more blocks. If I get 6 more done, I could put 4 of them together (4 sets of 4) and do sashing between them. Thinking about trying some small paper-pieced butterflies in the sashing if I can use some of the pre-cut fabric in the butterflies...or something...

    I'm no expert.....but I love the pattern and colors. If it was my quilt, I'd put some sashing between the blocks. I think it will be stunning when you get it done. We're always waaaaay to criticial of our own work.
