I have a finish to share this week! Since I've included Crumb Hearts in my to-do posts quite a bit in the last few months, it seems like the perfect place to share the finish.
I so appreciate all of the encouragement from blogging friends at this link-up that kept me going as I struggled through how to show off these heart blocks in a layout I really liked. What would work as a background fabric or alternate square? What should I do for borders? In the end, a smaller quilt made me happier - this measures 45 x 45.
For the quilting I used gentle curves to make different sizes of orange peels going diagonally across the quilt, and I'm really happy with how that turned out!
I'm not sure yet what I will do with this quilt - I have a couple ideas for donation, but I might just live with it for awhile before sending it off. It also still needs to take a trip through the washer and dryer.
I even ended up with one more small finish, and that is the tabletopper for my son. He wanted earthy colors, so I figured water, leaves, and stone should work, right?
It feels good to get these both off the to-do list and
be able to move on to the next items!
This week is kind of busy, so I'm keeping the list short and simple. I've prepped pieces for some of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks in orange, and they're sitting by the sewing machine ready to go when I get a few minutes to sew. For example, these are for the Masala Box blocks.
Once the squares are cut, these go together quickly!
My seasonal projects - the Frosties and Halloween Jubilee - are on hold for this week,
but I'm sure I'll get back to them in the near future!
Sharing at To-Do Tuesday at Texas Quilt Gal - thanks, Linda for hosting this fun link-up each week!
