Log Cabin Heart
All quilted and bound. I so love this one. Thanks to Cécile, Patchwork Inspirations and Béa, Une aiguille dans une botte de foin, for this nice, easy QAL.
I used a log cabin cheatsheet fabric from Debbie Mum's collection. First time I use the corner triangles to hang a wall-hanging.
I used pieces of fabric given to me by quilting friends. Even our sweet hostess, Cécile, is represented somewhere in these fabrics.
I quilted it in the ditch, then decided to add a little more. Suebee's World gave me some pink thread that I used to draw some FMQ hearts.
I wrote "heart" and "links" (Gosh, that would have been a good name for it but it's too late now) in the top corner blocks. I forgot to check for the corner triangles at the back and well, yes I did it! lol
Today, I will unstitch, (sounds like my only chore for the entire weekend. See last post for more about that.) those corners blocks and redo the FMQ words. All the threads need to be buried too.
This evening, I will attach the sweet label given to me by yet another quilting friend, Ruth from Country Log Cabin.
Thanks to all of you, precious friends, who have participated in this lovely little quilt.
After that, I will give some attention to the Ohio Star Shadow quilt.
Not much progress was done on this one in March. I'll try to do better this month.
Until next time .... look who came back!
She's been around for the last two weeks. She's on my porch at 6:30 in the morning, lol. She's my across the street neighbor's cat. She is very skittish and doesn't trust us much. Well, that was then. Now she has adopted us.
Photo bomb, lol
She even invited herself in ... for a very short visit.
