Thank you all so much for your kind words. I'm sorry I haven't gotten back here till now.. been a fun filled week.. NOT!!
I'd be more than happy to share with you the template I made so ya'll can make this too. It's also what I traced around to do the quilting.
Someone had asked how I got the heart shape. I also do digitizing and I made a heart in Embird, then printed and traced it out. It wasn't quite right for my first try, but then I did some modifications on it and it worked..
