    these are a few I've done

    This is the backside done with a fleece.

    this is a table runner I did for stepson and wife for their open house in their new rustic home.

    g/son will be 12 next month and is an "avid" hunter.

    I'm a fairly new beginner, so this was a bit of a challenge

    What a pretty quilt! I love the colors! :)

    Did you hand applique the hearts? If you like that look, but want a quicker result here's something to try. Draw the shape onto the paper side of a paper backed fusible, wonder under, heat-n-bond lite, etc. Cut a 1/4 inch or so beyond your finished line (this will be trimmed after you fuse it to the fabric). Before you fuse it to the fabric, cut out the middle, just leaving a 1/2 inch or so of the fusible. Iron to the wrong side of the fabric, then trim on your line. Place and press to your background fabric. This fuses just the edges, leaving the center soft like a hand applique. Once you sew around the edges, it doesn't look fused! If you are appliqueing a square, you can use 1/2" wide fusible tape instead and just apply it to the perimiter of the shape.

    I hope I've explained it well. If not, let me know and I'll try to do a sample with pics.

    Your gd will love it...it is so pretty. I like the way you did the borders with that wonderful scrappy border in the middle. You did a great job.
