    Country Junk'tion BOM - February Hearts

    Nothing like pushing the envelope to get this one done! I finished it this morning and displayed on the dining room door while our family exchanged Valentine cards. I used navy blues for the background and added extra hearts. Someone commented on another thread that it would look nice to have a heart partway in/out of the envelope. It does look nice doesn't it? I also added 'FEBRUARY' to the bottom of the mini quilt. Not necessary, just wanted to do it. Hope you like it!

    Now that may be what I need.
    Create something beautiful from scraps.

    As I am not a heart fan you made me like this months block with the use of the black background! I have porcrastinated making this months block because of my aversion to hearts but now I am on it thanks to you!!!!

    I feel the same way when blocks are designed and made in a palette other than is pleasing to my eye. Even though I love the original creation, green is not my first choice. My husband helped me play with color and also reassured me that I would be happier if I chose colors that please me. I really wish I liked green and yellow more because quilters make the prettiest quilts with them!

    Good luck on your mini quilt! I am excited to see what Country Junk'tion is posting next month!

    Greencat - I really like your February mini! Your fabrics are perfect. Your stippling is excellent. Can you repost your quilt when you put your heart in? Post it here or on your link. I'll see it in either place. Here's the link if anyone wants to look at Greencat's mini quilt:

    I really like your mini quilt and your fabrics! Your points on your envelope are MUCH better than mine. I'm not much of a piecer, so my envelope looks like it has snipped corners LOL! Did you use ribbon instead of fabric? That's a great idea. I thought of it after I was done.

    BTW: your kitties look so hugable in your avatar!
