Project Quilting 6 Challenge 4: Have a Heart

22 02 2015

There is this cool challenge called Project Quilting that Kim Lapacek over at Persimon Dreams coordinates (#pq6). This is the 4th challenge for Season 6: Have a Heart.

She throws out a challenge Sun at noon and you have to get it done by the following Sun at noon.  Crazy, right?  My goal was to get just one done on time. Well, the goal has been met.  A bit sloppy on the corners lining up, but done.  How about “Balancing Opposites” for a title?


The challenge required 12 hearts.  Last Sun I drew this up:


My sewing machine and I then struggled with with some 1″ squares to create the center during the week.


On Friday, shit got serious. I took the day off of work and focused on hearts.  It paid off because I got it done! Yeah me! With an important lesson learned: Square up ALL blocks as you go!

Here are some pictures.

The fabric collection is “Whisper” by Janine Burke of Blue Underground with Kona Cream for an accent.  Love, love, love the color combinations!

This is such a clever design–I was pleasantly surprised to discover the hearts when I clicked on the link-up thumbnail. Wonderful work!
