Seems like I've been working on this forever -- started cutting and piecing the blocks at the Pieceful Hearts retreat in South Carolina in January and was hoping to have it finished by end of February. But end of March is pretty close, right?
All the hearts were done using pink Mettler PolySheen 40 weight polyester embroidery thread in the 24 blocks with pink sashing and red PolySheen in the 6 red sashed blocks.
Drew in a few to see how it was going to look and then freehand quilted the bows and ribbons with the same pink and red PolySheen threads.
It was already bound so that quilting was the last step before being washed and dried.
And there we go -- all done! Just in time for NEXT Valentine's Day. So am I two months late or ten months early?
