    Got a Heart On

    Sewed the third border on today and did the first corner heart. I tried out 6", 7", and 8" hearts and the first two looked kind of small. Now this one looks kind of big. Aw well... it's a big-hearted quilt.

    It's not sewn on yet. Turned under seams and the heart and vine are glued down and ready to sew. Have one more border to do and three hearts. I still think that the little hearts on the outside might really be too much. I can quilt hearts for a more subtle effect.

    Nope, this is the quilt in my avatar picture. No recipient in mind and I think I will keep it.

    it is cute but if it's the pic in your avatar, you might want to know you put the heart upside down (If not for pointing out it's the one in the avatar, it would never have occurred to me it was not facing the way you wanted it)

    I like it alot, btw

    I decided that I wanted the hearts facing right side up when it's layed on a bed instead of hanging upside down so I turned it around.

    Very pretty and I love the play on words!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Very clean, crisp looking quilt. Love the lines coming from the heart they are done so nicely. Thanks for sharing.

    What a cute pattern and quilt. I would keep it for myself too. Isn't great that we can make changes in a patteren,even if it's a small one, that makes it our own.
    Would like to see it again when it's completed.

    The pattern is from the May 2010 issue of American Quilter magazine. It's called Magic Flowers and in the magazine it is done in pink and blue batiks. I used Civil War repros. I thought that the little squares in the blocks along the border looked unfinished, just floating out there all alone, so I came up with something to "connect" them to the border and added the vines/arcs. I also added the hearts in the centers and borders.

    a beautiful change to the orginal. It does make it seem more complete. Thanks for showing us how some imagination can make the quilt turly our own.
