    Inspired again, so quilt is finished, now for the wedding

    Was inspired and helped by Delta here on the board, and made a version of the Two Hearts Connected quilt for my upcoming grand daughters wedding. This was my first experience of paper piecing and I learned a great deal, needles to say...Also found out that I'm not a fan of stitching black on black.
    After working on this I treated myself to a new bag...thought I'd share . Thanks for lookingName:  heartquiltnbag2012 004.JPG

    Your quilt is beautiful and perfect for the occasion. I do have to mention though, that I love the typo - with needless coming out as needles. I cannot type the word quick without it coming out a quilt. (Even though I was just really concentrating - I put an L in there instead of a C!) Single minded quilters - our fingers do take over!

    It looks great. It was gorgeous just as a top and now is even more impressive.

    You did a great job. Black thread on black fabric is really hard to see ......

    That quilt is gorgeous and I am sure it will be loved by the recipients. Especially since you made it for them! Your bag is cute too.

    Your quilt looks great! I love that version of the old Storm at Sea pattern. It is always fun to do a small project after a big one and your bag is pretty.

    Did you mean to say "needles" to say or was it a typo? It was very cute wording. And, I love your quilt.
