Hearts & Flowers - My 2010 project
I noticed some of you were working on variations of the Hearts & Flowers quilt, so I thought I'd post some pictures of mine. I started this quilt (along with my dear friend) right after Christmas in 2009 and it took me most of 2010 to finish it. My goal was to complete it before the Houston Quilt Fest last October - which I did. I love the way it turned out and decided to hang it in my stairway. I've been quilting for about 15 years, but this quilt was my first foray into these fabrics from Fassett and so many others and I had a lot of fun with it. This was also my first real hand applique! (I'd done some on the machine, but it just isn't the same). Also, I hand quilt all my quilts! That's why it takes me a year or more to finish one!
Now back to the Roseville... almost finished another block today. I'm loving it.
