    Testing a Quilt Pattern!

    I had the wonderful opportunity to test a quilt pattern for Jenel Looney called Two Hearts in Love. Her pattern was inspired by the romance author Susan Mallery. She is Susan's assistant and she created this pattern as a gift for Susan. I will admit, she designed the heart portion of the quilt, but finished her pattern with a solid border...well, I like pieced borders and wanted the finished quilt to be larger (I will still be adding more borders to get it queen-sized), so I came up with the woven ribbons border. Currently it is 57"x73". I LOVE this pattern and it has become my go-to pattern for wedding quilts!!! If you ever have the opportunity to test a quilt pattern for someone, I would highly recommend it!

    Sew cute!! love the borders
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    huh.
    I could have sworn I already posted about this quilt on another thread - Two Hearts in Love - but it seems to have gone poof!

    Anyway, (again).....

    I love your woven-ribbon design.
    It's relatively easy to construct but really creates a wonderful graphic that nicely complements the hearts.
    My favorite kind of border.

    I'm can definitely see many uses for it.

    Great work, and thanks for sharing!
