Sewing party Part 2

How is everyone doing?

Mine is coming along Ticky Tock! When I first came home from the store with the fabric I was not impressed, I found it a bit "busy" but as I get the pieces put together I think it will work. If I do this project again I will stop at this level and not put the hearts on. I really like the looks of the block! And I am even thinking of doing it scrappy. Each block a different color. um?
But because it is a valentine tabletopper I have my hearts ready to be fused.


and machine applique... I think I need a bit more practice doing this on the machine.
Well , the next step is to sandwich it and quilt it. Again machine quilt it. That is!
See you later.

  8. The fabric combination is all just right. I can see why you would like this made up without hearts, although I do like the hearts, lol, it's just sweet as can be even without the hearts. Happy quilting!
