This wall hanging caught my eye in a magazine. I increased the size of pieces, so had to figure out most--using algebra/ratios. One piece--the rectangle at the top of the heart is off--it was too big, so I see what it did at the bottom where it looks like a butterfly--uneven. Rats. I've 100% run out of this red--so glad there was enough to finish these five hearts.

UPDATE: Borders now added. I had 2" red strips cut to add a third, but decided a red binding would be perfect.

The way the original was--I didn't like how the actual blocks stood out from the background--the lights are scrappy, but I made sure it didn't look like the hearts were distinctly different blocks.

This pattern called for 5 squares, but I ah, made 30. :oops: It seems such a waste to toss those 1.75" squares for the start to the log cabin section. :oops: So--- more to come, but the rest won't look like this one at all--nope. They are scrappy, and there's a waaaaayyyy different background on the next one, or two, or three. :wink:

This is stunning! I would add a black/red braided border, then maybe a white on white...

just a suggestion,

Just got back from Joanne's and they had some of the fabric!!!! I bought it years ago, I'm sure. It wasn't 100% the same--but no one will ever know.

Black? Oooo--neat idea.

Melissa--give me time--give me time!! Pant, pant, pant...

You did such a GREAT job!
No way I would have tackled it if I had to do algebra/ratio or ANY kind of math combo. That just makes my brain hurt!
But you did a GREAT job!
You go girl!!
