Heart Quilt top

Top done, me happy!
The columns spent a day on my design wall (flannel sheet which hangs on two nails on top of our dining room art). I tried out several variations, but did not want it too symmetric, so I ended up with this layout.

I spent Monday night power sewing the columns together and pressed the seams yesterday morning. I still have to snip all those little threads peeking up here and there. It’s amazing how much blocks will unravel being handled and moved around for months and months.
It is sooo pretty, I love it!

For the next progress report I will have to get a fleece blanket for backing (this will be a snuggle quilt, and the hearts are already so stiff from fusible), wash it, and baste the top. I hope! Wish me luck! So, how are you doing on your projects; any progress to report?

  4. Fabulous quilt top! It would be so nice to cuddle under all that love. (I think you may be making this into a lap quilt rather than a wall hanging, but forgive me if I'm wrong.) Your whole blog is great - just found it through Loft Creations' No Strings Attached Challenge, and I'm glad!
