Some Hearts

This is about as close as I get to heart related items in my house. We aren't a Valentine's Day kind of house. Hubby has the typical male disdain, and I frankly don't care that much. But wait, these aren't my hearts!

This is the last of the round robin quilt tops from my guild (Hey, check out our new website!). We all got our own tops back on the weekend. I'll share mine soon. But this last one has hearts, so I'll share it with you today.

I added on the Prairie Braid border. I've actually always wanted to try one of these. It is very easy, but time consuming. And you do waste the fabric that you have to trim off. Oh well, it is all about the design. And it came together really well. I think it's a great finish to the top. (And please ignore my supremely ugly kitchen floor.)

Now that the tops are back with their original owners we have a few months to add to it, if we want, and finish the quilts. I can't wait to see how everyone finishes up with their quilts.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I am anxious to see the finished products too.

That border is amazing! Very cool and very beyond my quilting skill level. :)

Oh my gosh, I love that... You must be very proud of it! I want to try that border sometime, too!

Love that braid border!

Annie Crow said...

Oh, this is lovely! Did you make the center sampler yourself?

The border works quite well with the rest of the quilt.
