    Pink Hearts quilt top

    I just finished putting this pink and red hearts quilt top together and had to share it with you all. This is a quilt that is earmarked for a charity auction for children's diabetes.

    The little hearts were sent to me from a fellow board member dotcom. (dotty) They were raw edged at first. But, I loved them! I blocked them out and bought some light weight interfacing to sew around them to stablize them , turned them to the outside by cutting a slit in the back interfacing and then appliqued them to the background strips. I think you get the idea from there.

    I think it is adorable! It turned out to be aproximantly51"x 60" in size. The setting strips make it look like a party. Don't you think? I still need to quilt it, but, that is next!

    Please tell me what you think.

    So pretty!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
