I had hoped this quilt would be a finish in January but I'm happy that it is all finished now. I wanted to make a quilt for one of my students as he and his wife we expecting a baby at the end of January, I was also taking part in the Hearts on fire blog hop and so I combined the two. I needed to include hearts in the design but they couldn't be red. To make the quilt I needed some blocks with hearts on the. I cut the hearts and machine appliqued them on a plain background
Put them all together to make the top. Add wadding, backing and quilt. Finally add the binding. What have you got? A finished quilt that is now packed and on it's way to baby Umar.
I couldn't take the quilt out to photograph as it hasn't stopped raining. We're possibly going to get snow tomorrow which would certainly make a change I'm really happy with this finish and I hope baby Umar will enjoy using it for many years
I need to decide which project to complete this month. It's always takes a little time to decide and usually I pick something I've been working on for a while. This time I'm picking a project I started recently, February 2nd to be precise. In January I made some pink 9 patch blocks for the Rainbow Scrap challenge and I hunted out the ballerina blocks I had.
