Progress on the heart quilt has been pretty slow lately but mostly that's been due to the fact that I haven't really had the time to sit down and sew. Funnily enough I've had the time to sit and knit but in my book sewing is a "focus on the task" kind of thing that means I shut myself away with the sewing machine - whereas knitting is done from the comfort of the couch, in company while watching TV. It's the less anti-social of my two favourite hobbies so it wins out more often than not.
Even so, I have still managed to slowly build up the heart blocks piece by piece. I shared a few details before about how I made the blocks but after that I was a little stumped for a while as to the best way of putting them all together. I finally settled on expanded the white area about the blocks to make them 10" rather than 6" and then I sewed them together with a 1" strip of purple in between them.
Overall I really like the effect. I found the perfect backing fabric online and have just starting the quilting process. I can't wait to share the finished quilt with you once it's done. That is of course if Boomer will allow me to work on it.....if you put it on the floor he'll "test" it for comfort!
