elements added. trying to keep this in muted tones with very little color. Also put a bird on it---idea from all the wonderfull quilter blogs that are out there in data land.
started this in jan or feb of 2012...seems i always work on forty things at a time. i put the different sections together. Pressed muslin to the back of the border fabric ---machine stitched the borders on.
on this one i sewed on strips of fabric to cover the seams on the back. will see how that works out??

this all began after reading Judd Hill's spirit cloth blog. making quilts or small peices for the sake of stitching and staying away from the old school quilting rules.
Never made a heart quilt. Hearts too sweet, too smoozy so used them here. fabric used as is raw edges and all-yeah the fraying stops after kanthra stitches are added. the large borders are two layers of fabric --except those i did add by machine and also did some rows of stitching to help attach the back and front.
hope to use this blog to document all the sewing, quilting i have done. need to get pictures of things and make a history. should take a long time.....
