    Dittoes! I like the idea of echoing the heart as a quilt pattern.
    And thank you for the picture of your quilt and the source of your inspiration. Seeing your quilt motivated me to print out the pattern. Your use of color is a real motivator .

    That's beautiful, kimmers! I've done one of these blocks which is on a little sampler my DD has in her room, it looks great as a whole quilt! As for the quilting, if you really want to make the hearts puffy, I would outline quilt AND echo at 1/4". I'm currently quilting a bed quilt with appliquéd hearts like that and they really POP! I've got wool batting in as well which is really fluffy.

    I think your heart quilt is so pretty, I love the colours too :D

    If you really want the hearts to pop you could use trapunto method by adding an extra layer of batting just to the hearts before layering up the quilt as normal :D

    I love this! Since I can't hand applique nowadays, I thought I had to give up my heart blocks idea. Now I can do it... thanks!

    I found the Patchy Heart 10" block pattern --- on Quilter's Cache... #47 in her 2005 collection.

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

    I really like the idea of putting some extra batting under the hearts for a little more puff!

    I am heading to Florida to see my mom for Mothers day so when I get home I will have to get started on it cause I am really excited to see it totally done!

    Quilterscache is a great site for block patterns. I did a similar pattern, using a tulip block instead of hearts. To make the tulips stand out more, I did free motion on the background.

    That is beautiful....as for quilting, I agree with most on this, stictch in ditch around heart then an echo, maybe try different color threads to match some of the patches????

    Great Job!

    wow, kimmers! I love when somebody posts a really pretty project that doesn't look too out of reach for me. You did a fantastic job on it.
    I'd like to give this one a go sometime. Did you pick colors, or was block like this. I'm not always good with combining, but great at admiring and copying, lol! :D

    It was pretty easy to put together but it was very time consuming. I loved the fact that I could just pick a patch and sew it on. I just tried to make sure that I didn't have the same color patches touching...but I am so happy with the way it turned out and so thankful for all of your comments. I just smile even bigger!!!
