    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:

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

    just a suggestion,
    purple

    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...

    I LOVE IT!!
    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!!

    Ladies, ladies, the math isn't that hard--two fractions with one unknown. Mulitpy, then divide and you've got it. If anyone is in a similar situation, let me know and I'll show you. I'm too brain dead right now to type out an explanation. I should go to bed...but my eyes aren't blurry enough just yet...............

    I'm lucky if I can get my checking account to balance every month. You want me to use fractions with an unknown? Then multiply and divide?
    I'm thinking I need to find a 5th grade class to join. lol

    You remind me of me! I'll be working on something and then -- "Oh, look! Pretty!" and I'm off on another tangent! That's why I have several quilts in various stages waiting to be completed! You know that old saying "Love the one you're with"? That's me and quilts! Somehow finishing the old ones is not nearly as mucy fun as starting something new. I think it's the thought in the back of my mind that maybe THIS time my quilt will be perfect!

    I've decided this one needs custom quilting--so, even though it's small, I'm going to have my quilter do it. She'll light right up to have one that's not an overall design. :D The original pattern (much smaller) was quilted in red thread, but I don't think I can go there. You think white?

    I think white. Red would distract from the hearts.
