The beauty of this pieced heart is very much an example of art imitating life. None of us gets out of this life without heartbreak and disappointments. However, putting yourself back together and finding a way to be happy is what makes us beautiful, interesting and one of a kind.
This little piece is made with odds and ends and finished up with a little hand work. It makes me smile just looking at it!
Thank you for bearing with my sentimentality today and I hope each of you can find a way to make something beautiful out of any odds and ends you happen to have laying around..... ;)
It has been an odds and ends day. First off, I have been meaning to post this pillow pic. It is the Japanese + and x block. I love this little block and have been wanting to do something with it for a while now. I would like to make a big quilt with this block one day. Don't now if that will happen anytime in the near future.
Every time I look at this pillow I smile. This is not the only sewing I have managed around here but pics will have to come after Santa's visit.
I did get some batik scraps out today, I am happy to say. And obviously I have Hearts on the brain.
Just a little "itchy finger" sewing. You know when you just think "what if I try this?"
Or what if I do this?
It has been a good "Odds and Ends" sewing kinda day.......
Today was the first day back to school for my kids. They were not nearly as excited as I was.....go figure. I finally have the binding on my Italian tiles quilt and it has been washed. I am very happy with it. It was a lot of fun to make and I used some OLD fabrics that I hadn't seen in a long time.
This is one of those quilts that just make me happy! I really enjoyed every single step of the process on this quilt. (I have made one or two quilts that I can't say that about.) I particularly enjoyed quilting feathers but what is not to like about quilting feathers?
And of course I love a pieced back! Another thing that makes me happy! Yipee! ;)
