When I take down my Christmas decorations and the house looks all blah and bare, out come the bright reds and lots of hearts! Ahhhh! looks better now.
Every time the Heart Welcome ribbon thingie is displayed, I always promise myself to make different ones for the different holidays. AND, you know how those kind of promises never get on the "to do" list???.....maybe this year.
Do all quilters have one or two favorite quilts they've made??
This is one of mine. I love Sunbonnet Sue, and the blocks are hand embroidered using redwork. At the time they were finished, Moda Fabrics had these wonderful red prints that worked perfect with them. I've still got a bit of these same fabrics in my stash. MODA is my absolute favorite too.
Here's close-up pics of a couple of the blocks.
My goodness...makes me want to do some more hand embroidery work...so relaxing and enjoyable. Somewhere, there's a pair of unfinished embroidered pillow cases...mmmmmm?? Wonder where they are?? Do you embroider??
Sue's outline was quilted in the borders along with some loopy loops.
OK....OK....enough Sue, let's get back to the heart thingies......
Another Valentine pillow; machine embroidery called The Love Bug.
Here's a small heart wall hanging with embroidery design....tweets, I hang by the front door. If you have an embroidery machine, the Embroidery Library has lots of these tweet designs for the different holidays.
Close up of the love birds.
Here's Crooked Hearts table topper.
There's also two or three table runners too, but enough hearts for one day! Now......if they were chocolate hearts that's a different story......
Thanks for visiting!
