My third unfinished quilt is FINISHED!
Be My Valentine
This quilt got its start in 2016.
I paper pieced the hearts from a pattern I drew myself. A heart paper piece pattern is not hard to draw at all.
I lay thin sheet boards on my bed for pin basting. I have one full size sheet that is 4’ X 80” (because I have low ceilings upstairs). I have an extension sheet that is 30” X 80”. I used the smaller one for drawing my quilting lines.
When a fabric has a wide flat selvage with printing info on it, I like to make it a part of my quilts. Just for fun.
This is a smaller quilt that measures 58” X 76”.
I used two of the fabrics for the binding. They are pretty close in looks, so it isn’t easily noticed. But I like it.
It feels so good to have all of my unfinished quilts finished.
I couldn’t wait to start on the next quilt. I meant to start and finish one. But I’ve got two new ones going at the same time. I planned one. The second came as a request that I don’t want to put off too long. So I’m just working them both at once. What a happy quilter I am! :-)
