Hearts and Flowers Progress


I have been steadily working on my Hearts and Flowers quilt and am just about to reach the finish.  I have enjoyed this quilt and have not been able to work on any others since I started it.
My next decision is weather to use the fabric shown in the book for the last border or to choose a darker one.

I need to make up my mind because I am ready to finish this one so I can start the next one Lollypop Trees.

Margaret Bunny

I knit this little bunny for Lillian while she was here for a visit this past week.  Not the easiest thing I have knit.....I know Lillian is going to have fun with those ears.
It is a free pattern by Joanne Jongsma.  If you are interested in the pattern just type Margaret by Joanne Jongsma in your search engine and it will come up.
I couldn't get the link to work.

Hearts and Flowers Border One

I finally got the first border on my Hearts and Flowers quilt.  Lots of inside points  on this one.  I worry about them fraying so I think I over stitch them..  There must be an easier way.

Kim McLean's Hearts & Flowers





I finished the center of my Hearts and Flowers quilt. I think the hardest thing about this block was squaring it up after I finished...it's 25.5 inches square.
I am still not sure if it is exactly right but it will have to do.

"Lillian"


Don't you just wish  you could stop time and keep them babies forever?
