Hearts All Around


From my archives, this little mini quilt is perfect to help us celebrate Valentine’s Day and appropriate as I think of this as spreading our hearts all around the world.

The block was an orphan; but it didn’t languish too long in the bin!

Do you see the stipple quilting? This was done by hand …… before I found the beauty and fun in machine stipple quilting.

If I was ever to do this quilt again, the binding would not be that colour. It’s done now and there is no way that it’s going to be unpicked and a new binding put on. It’s alright, it’s OK, and it’s staying as is! :o)

Enjoy your day!
