This time I got an easy one - thanks Lissa.
We're supposed to talk about why size matters and .....
the size of your heart always matters.
Nuff said. :)
These are 6" (finished) hearts and 6" (finished) squares making up a 9-patch heart block.
Heart 9-Patch Pillow
I was torn between making the block into a small wallhanging or a pillow. Obviously, I chose the pillow. I love to change the quilts and pillows on my couch. Hearts don't just need to be around on Valentine's Day - they're important all year. To download the instructions to make the pillow, click here.
If you'd like a kit to make the pillow we have a few in the store. Just click here.
The little quilt on special today is "The Witch is In". It's getting close to Halloween so it's pretty appropriate but as I've always said, "This isn't a Halloween quilt, it's a statement quilt." :)
I do occasionally feel (and maybe act) like one - but not very often, I hope. It's a really good quilt to hang on the door on one of those days. :)
It's also one of the quilts I used in my new tutorial on how to applique circles, all sizes of circles - big ones like the moon and small ones like her eyes. If you'd like to learn more about appliqueing circles or just want to watch the tutorial for the heck of it, click here. If you like the tutorials, please do subscribe.
And speaking of tutorials, we will also have a tutorial Friday - the lucky 13th - on tips for appliqueing the center block from our Crossroads quilt "Eagles and Roses". Be sure and come back because we'll also have an awesome Give-Away that goes with it.
And if you're going to be anywhere close to Cameron tomorrow (the 7th), I'll be showing all of my Crossroad quilts at Crossroads Quilt Shop in Cameron around 9:30. Please come, I'd love to meet you.
Ok - now for the important part - giving things away today..
We've got a Layer Cake, Charm Bundle, Mini Charm and Dessert Roll - Crossroads precuts.
Make a comment, any comment - maybe about things that have to do with the size of someone's heart.
But if you don't have a thought about that, just make a comment.
We'll have a drawing and announce the winner of the precuts on the 16th.
For right now we have to go see what Sandy and Pat are up too. I can't wait.
