    This one has been on the shelf for a couple of months but in the last two days I finished two rows of hearts and now ready to sew the two halves together and do the last row of hearts.

    It's going to be a bear to wrestle the entire quilt under the machine to sew on the middle hearts!

    Wow, when it's finished it's going to be something. I can't wait to see the final quilt. That's a lot of squares.

    I'm so glad you posted the picture! I've been wondering where you were. I agree that the obligations we make when we join RRs or exchanges sometimes get in the way of other things we suddenly want to do. Or do they unleash a burst of creativity just because we can't act on it? Either way, it's dad-gummed hard to do so many things at once!

    What a pretty pattern. I don't believe I've ever seen this. Is this something you designed? You picked the right colors for it too. Congratulations.

    I started calling this one The Never Ending Quilt. I worked on and on and on with these small pieces and it seemed to never get anywhere. I got to the point where I just couldn't do anymore and had to take a break from it.

    Yeah, Joanne... The IRR was waiting for me and I didn't know what to do on it. I wouldn't let myself work on anything else until it was done. That meant I wasn't doing anything and it really got me down where I didn't want to work on anything.

    I really need the creative outlet to keep myself balanced (not that I'm unbalanced! :P ).

    The block pattern is from American Quilter, May 2010 issue. I added the hearts and border.

    Thanks for visiting the blog. Just somewhere to write out thoughts, designs, etc.

    And I love all the little squares. When I first looked at it I thought that they were just scrappy little ones but when I looked closer I saw that they were all matching accordingly. Amazing! You have a lot of patience with those little pieces. It is going to be a beautiful quilt

    The block pattern is from American Quilter magazine, May 2010. It's called Magic Flowers because of the blank shape that is formed between the blocks, I assume.

    Those little pieces about did me in, the squares are 1 1/4" finished size.

    Last row of hearts on and ready to sew! Not looking forward to that so think I will put the borders on my son's quilt while I contemplate it. :lol:

    I can justify it to myself that my son's quilt needs to be done by christmas, this one is a 'just because' quilt.
