I hope to start work on AOTH again tomorrow. I have been busy finishing up some UFOs. I made valances for my kitchen & breakfast room windows and also for my sewing room windows. My main project was a quilt for my DGGS, Logan, who will be 1 yr old on 8/14. I posted a picture of his quilt at http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-138793-1.htm
I also have my DGS, Luke, quilt ready for the binding. I posted a picture of that at http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-138798-1.htm.
I'm ready to get back to AOTH. I really missed it.

I'm so darn slow lately...I lack 2 sections of the embroidery on #2..then have to pick the fabric for #3 before I can start that one. Its pretty though...lots of pieces and will probably take me forever!
Why can't you do a combo of both - a heart here & a swirly there. I had considered that if I didn't like how the curlies turned out. Didn't put pencil to paper though.

And just to throw another suggestion into the mix, for those that don't like doing a lot of embroidery, they could applique the hearts or scrolls!

Bleach pen??? do tell! how does that work???

Andrea, I bought a print with flowers, I am using it for all of my centers, it looks really nice :D
I think that embroidery would look really great! I am changing my blocks quite a bit to have more embroidery and less layers of applique.

I need to take some pics!

That is so lovely for dashing. I like it better than the original.
