I interrupted Fred's Super Bowl game long enough to draw the winning name, and Mary, he said to tell you that you owe him $5! I'll bring it to you at our Saturday meeting, and Congratulations!
Today I finished the Heart and Home wall hanging I have been working on. On the last post, it looked like this. As you know I was not at all happy with this design. Sooooooooooooooooooo.......
After several revisions (or I should say rippititions) it ended up like this. The saying that I put on it says "It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home." I found that on the internet and really liked it. It was listed as "author unknown" so I think that means I am free to use it. I did free motion hearts for the quilting. It is hanging between two kitchen cabinets, hiding an ugly grey fuse box. The heart buttons are shell buttons that I recently found at Tuesday Morning and just love. I purchased a bag of them - hearts, butterflies, different shapes and sizes.
Wednesday my lunch group finished up our pizza box round robbin and I am just thrilled with my quilt. You may recognize the Boo block center from Fons and Porter - but the rest of the design is original to the ladies in the group.
Round 1 - set the block on point - Cheryl, and she added some nice embroidered leaves;
Round 2 - the second round was a pieced border - Katie G and pretty friendship stars so appropriate;
Round 3 - 3 dimensional, and Carol added some yoyo flowers for the dimension;
Round 4 - was quilter's choice - Katie L, and just the right finishing touch.
They all did a wonderful job and I could not be more pleased. Thank you Cheryl, Carol, Katie and Katie!
