    Wink I love you baby

    So awhile back, I friended a girl on facebook solely for the purpose of having more neighbors in a game. I haven't played that game in forever, but I kept her around cause she plays other games, and she seems very cool. Well she's about to pop with her 3rd kid and her 2 are much older. Like it's been 8 years since the last one. I think it was a surprise. Anyways. I had a my niece about to pop, and a friend's daughter about to pop (just did the other day) and I was making them stuff and posting on facebook about the things I was making and she was like OMG so cute. So When I got all these pretty pink and red fabrics in a layer cake from my june secret pal swap partner, I made the heart. Wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. Eventually I had a concept and I made a really crude drawing. I sat on it some more.. finished a bunch of other projects for all the other babies. Well, now I have finished the top for this lovely lady. Finallyy.. This picture doesn't do it justice. The pinks are very vibrant and the whites are almost blindingly bright and beautiful. This is my first "intricate" quilt. I made 1 before this, it was 25 squares. hehe. I made another one that was pre-pieced on the bolt so I literally just tied it to the back and called it done. So this is my first REAL quilt top.

    OMG! That is beautiful! You just kinda made that pattern up? I'm super impressed! I think you should do a tutorial on that because I know lots of people would like to make something as fabulous as this (I know I would!)! Great job!!!

    Yea.. pretty much. I graph paper drew out the heart awhile back (I can share that if anyone wants it, it's in my albums) and did it in 2.5" strips.. and the geese I did with HST method, and the ribbon border I pulled from quilterscache.com, they also call it pyramid border cause if you flip the block a diff way it'll make pyramids instead. I had some math problems with that and ended up a few inches short.. hehe.. so I just put another sliver of pink on the end.

    First time making geese too! I did them with HSTs and I glued my pieces per a tutorial on here about using glue for piecing. I'm a little OCD sometimes. haha.

    Gorgeous quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    welcome to the world of quilt designing! We all have ideas in our heads that we want to make, but don't know how to go about translating it to the quilt. You figured it out beautifully! Well done!!
