Finished Hearts

I have finished two of the hearts I started for the Make A Heart tutorial a couple of weeks ago.

“Fragile Heart”This is the sample with the silver grey tulle which makes the colours a little toned down. The heart is made with 3 rounds of yarn, which I decided was enough.


“Heart as White as Snow”This is the sample with the red tulle. The colour was so vibrant that I used 5 rounds of yarn. If you have read the tutorial, you will remember that I had to remove lots stretched yarn from the not-so-flat-anymore background. Well, I ripped it off, and added new yarn.

I have added simple regular bindings to both these little quilts.

Dawn at Subversive Stitchers: Women Armed with Needles will be doing a heart post for Valentines, and has posted a link to my heart tutorial. Pop over and meet some of her amazing Subversive Stitchers.

  1. Jeg er så imponert over hva du får til Nina Lise.
    Nå gleder jeg meg til "Kule Fugler".
    Må tenke litt før jeg klarer å bestemme meg for hvem jeg skal sy. Alle er jo like fine.
