    From My Heart to Yours

    Thought that this was the perfect day to post my latest applique' project ~ since it's hearts! I started this last spring and worked on it inbetween other projects. The closer I got to completing it, the more I worked on it. Love applique' work and love how this turned out. Think I'm giving it to my dear daughter-in-law because she is definitely a sweetheart. It is from "Paper-Cut Valentines" by Darcy Ashton. It measures 66" X 66". Now I'm on the hunt for the perfect backing and will be sending it out to my favorite longarmer (Charisma). Enjoy!

    Gorgeous! Is it needle turn applique? If it is, that's an awesome achievement. If it machine applique....it's still an awesome achievement!
