I Heart This!

I'd seen this freebie pattern offered on Nanette's blog (Freda's Hive) via The Fat Quarter Shop Blog and fell instantly in love with it. Yesterday I could no longer resist it. LOL I pulled many red and white and creams/whites and started sewing. I made the hearts and then we scooted off to a going away party for some friends. When we got home I started sewing again and didn't stop until it was done. I remembered that somewhere deep, deep, deep in a drawer in my closet I had that adorable border print. After a bit of searching I found it - Serendipity - I was meant to make it. :-)

I quilted Duck, Duck, Goose last week and plan to quilt this today.

Please visit Freda's Hive, Nanette has more wonderful seasonal patterns for sale in her Etsy shop.

I'm loving the rain we're having here on the Surface of the Sun today. I have a tendency to crave rain!!

I hope that you're finding joy in your corner of the world, I am! I appreciate that you stop by to visit, thank you!

In Friendship!

That is an adorable heart quilt. Looks like a lot of fun to make and a good way to use some stash.

I'm like you. I love rain, especially when I can hear it falling. I also like snow. I guess like all precipitation. When it's raining or snowing I always feel warm and snug.
