Because Loveland has wonderful views of the Rocky Mountains, specially created Valentines, and lots of public art, I knew those things would need to be represented in my first ever entry into Project Quilting.
I started with a sketch and some scraps -
Those scraps turned into this patchwork background - grassy fields, mountains, sun, and blue sky.
A heart was needed, so I fussy cut one that I raw-edge appliqued to the background. After a little quilting and binding, my Sweetheart City mini, measuring 10 inches square, is complete!
Loveland has been my home since 1977, and I am definitely Hometown Proud!
Head over to Persimmon Dreams to check out the other Hometown Proud entries - they're a lot of fun!
