This is my February challenge. I plan to quilt and bind my heart quilt this month. What better month to work on it? And since I plan to use big-stitch hand work with perle cotton, it will be perfect to stitch while watching the Olympics.
These hearts are from a swap on the DJ Alternate yahoo group back in 2009. I finished the top that year, but it has languished along with my other 15+ tops that need quilting. My bad!!! The setting is using the Disappearing 9-Patch. I posted about it on this blog way back then.
Rosa recently quilted her's (well her DH did on his long-arm), and it reminded me of mine. I worked on my blocks for this swap at the Dear Jane Retreat in Shipshewana, IN, in the fall of 2008. Whew, that was a while back. Brings back memories of the many on-line friends I met there, including Ruthie Quilts. She was working on her's there too, it's the one with that lovely lace in the center'ish.
Happy stitching to my quilty friends.
