    This one has been idling for a little while as other things had to get done but I am back working on it. This is the one in my avatar picture.

    I got all of the corner sections finished and so far 12 blocks of the side triangles done since last night. This is a picture of half of the blocks, there is a total of 48 blocks.

    I made two center 9-patch of each of 24 fabrics, then two of the same corner sections out of each of another 24 fabrics. I have 24 of the tringle block pieces cut out of 12 fabrics so that's a total of 60 different fabrics so far. I haven't decided if I will use ANOTHER 12 fabrics for the rest of the triangles or if I will use up the leftovers from all the other sections. I need to do the small and large hearts and not sure I can cut off another strip of each and still have a large enough piece left for the hearts.

    I also have 7 different fabrics for the green sashing blocks and still need to get the fabric for the vines.

    I forgot about the purple in the centers... that's 3 more different fabrics. Just going to throw 12 more 9x11 pieces into the wash to do the last 24 triangle sections. That makes a total of 84 different fabrics, including the vine and the ivory. :-D

    I love the design in your Avatar, and I love the way you post your WIP. I think the thing that is so appealing to me is the way the applique compliments the center piecing. It looks like another prize winner in progress!

    Thank you all, I'm really liking this one. Had to stop for the day as I ran out of ivory so cut some more off (I have a bolt of Kona Cotton) and put it in the wash.

    I'm going to try turned machine applique for the hearts. Sharon Schamber has a video on how she does it using freezer paper and starch. I want it neater than raw edge on this one.

    Looks like you're moving right along on this one, Pam. I really like that cutting mat with all the different quilt shapes on it. What brand is it?

    The mat is June Tailor. It's pretty old and it's a hard mat, unlike the self-healing ones. I do want to get a large Olfa one.

    Still plugging away at the triangle sections, half of them sewn and pressed. I got the green squares cut out and put some up on the design wall to see how it looks. All of the hearts will each be in a different fabric.

    (the two blocks on the left aren't sewn together, just stuck on the wall)

    The pattern is from the May 2010 issue of American Quilter. It was done in pink, yellow and blue batik in the magazine. I am using Civil War fabric and I designed the border and added the hearts.

    Thanks for the info.............
    but let me tell you that the additions you have made with the hearts and border are truly what make the quilt.
