Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentine's

I'm really excited to show you my Valentine's quilt, I bought the Layer cake last year with a heart quilt in mind, then there was a #sewmystash2015 weekend challenge to make a finished quilted item.
Well I'm always up for a challenge, I started on Friday morning and by Friday afternoon had a finished flimsy top.

Quilted it on the Sunday and it was bound later on in the week
I am in love with this quilt,everything came together perfectly, the @aurifil quilting gods have been with me this weekend, no thread breakages, quilt frame or machine problems, no eyelashes everything just feels perfect with it. Binding making this after

It's quilted with free motion hearts and loops with aurifil 40wt cotton, it's a cotton bedding sheet from Daxon this time, small white polka dots on pink. I really enjoyed making this one, I loved everything about it, the seams all nest and the quilt gods were with me.

Its bound and now needs sewing down but DS is enjoying it already. That's this weeks sewing in front of TV sorted. Must get other one finished tonight so it can be gifted


DS couldn't even wait for the binding to be stitched on the back, and it's been heavily used already, even though we have another 7 in the lounge that could be used lol...










Here's some nice outside piccies, taken when I had a really bad case of flu and it was just about to snow

I think the black border sets it off but I was to do it again i'd change the 2nd row, 2nd down square to a lighter one so that the heart pops more.
