The Season for Hearts

This block was a squeeze in project for a group quilt for a friend who recently loss her husband at the end of last year. Now I can present it since she has since received the quilt. How timely only 4 days before Valentine's Day.

Happy Valentine's Day!

We were given color options of pink, lavender and purple. Not having any of these colors in my stash that worked well together off to the local fabric store I went to find the perfect colors and fabric.

The printed fabric was the focus fabric to draw from to match colors.
The center pocket is faced so it could be used to put a signature tag inside as I didn't want to have ink on the block itself. I love the addition of the lavender thin ribbon on the tag.

The final finish is the blanket stitching around each heart.  The extra stitching made the block sing giving a nice completed appearance.

Partying at Linky Tuesday at Freemotion by the River.



Thank you for visiting and wishing you a great sewing or quilting day!
