I finished this adorable wall hanging just in time for Valentines Day! I just love the colours, so bright and fun! I spotted this cute little kit at a local quilt shop and had to make it. It was just the thing to do during this cold spell we have been having. Wow, has it been cold. This was also a nice break from working on the big quilts I always seem to be working on.
I couldn’t decide whether to machine free motion quilt or hand quilt it. I finally decided to try hand quilting. I thought it would be easy! However, I have very little experience in hand quilting so I probably took a lot longer to quilt this small wall hanging than more experienced hand quilters’ would have.
I found out that making the stitches look even and pretty on top is easy. The hard part is making them look just as nice on the back side. Yes, I ripped out a lot of stitches until I finally figured out a good rocking motion that worked. Not all the stitches are perfect but it’s finished and I like it.
Ta da! I just love the way it turned out. I almost forgot to mention that the heart is actually a pocket. Maybe on Valentines Day there will be a little something in there from my Valentine! Hint hint! It’s so bright and red! Oh, how I love RED!
Speaking of red . . . . everything I have seems to be either red or pink. After doing this red Valentine wall hanging I now want to make a red and white quilt. Maybe a log cabin quilt. I have always wanted to make one of those.
I hung my finished little lovely on the door of my future sewing room! Another project in the works! Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!
