I want to thank CAROL for putting this blog hop together. She certainly puts a lot of love into her quilts, so such an appropriate Hop to start the year off with her. Here is the list of participants today :
When Carol called out for particpants in this Hop, I was in the middle of doing some reorganization and came across a container of green and pink 2.5" squares - when did I cut/collect these? Perfect for my project. These are just the left overs from the finish - I had a LOT of squares!
I started out making a lot of 4-patches and was going to just add something with an applique, but that's not me.
So I added some small hearts in the mix, but after I laid a few rows out they looked a little lost. It needed something more.
So a few large hearts got added to the mix as the bigger picture and the little hearts were the fun little finds. There even are a few black/white blocks in the mix to add a little more whimsy.
Just a plain single outer border to hold it all together, a limey green for the back, lots of straight line quilting, and the binding is the last of an old Ro Gregg 'Supporting Cast'. How perfect was that stripe green with mini pink flowers.
I had an extra little heart and it will be the label. Since this will be a donation quilt, I don't normally add a label but this adds a little bit of a loving touch.
The quilt finished 50" x 60" and will be one of my quilt guild donations to Family Community Services - sure to wrap some little girl in a lot of love.
Thank you for visiting and please be sure to visit all of the participants as well as Carol - Who has a give away for the Hop,
