My world, my life, my thoughts...my way. I'm a longarm quilter who has an older fabric stash that i am trying to use up. I particularly like selvage quilting and strip and crumb blocks. Life in the country is a never ending education.

My Sister's Hearts
This top was pieced by my sister. she hand stitched all those hearts to the little blocks....twice....around the edge, and then inside about 1/4".
It is 69" square.
I did SID around the blocks and the hearts, and went inside the heart, too. i went across the rows continuously.
In the red border i did a meander with large hearts echoed.
The blue border got a large meander with little hearts throughout.
The back is a cranberry color....more like it shows on the left of the pic. the flash of the camera lightened it up a lot.
Top thread was Glide Chestnut; bobbin was So Fine dark brown.
I'll take it back to her next week...at least i don't have to bind this one. haha
