This was a complete top that I made for Threads That Bind as a sample for the strip class I taught as well as a set of Jelly Rolls that I cut. I chose the fabrics in the strips to go with the fabric in the strip border at the top and bottom of the heart. I like how it all works, a little different from my usual choices - quite vibrant!
Those curves did not look at all even when I did them, but once they were all done it looked really great! I did have to go back when I was finished with this quilt and take care of a couple tucks that got worked into the paisley quilting. Grr. Poly batting tends to be more of an issue for that than the cotton I usually use.
This quilt is now available for sale in my Etsy Shop. It measures 56 inches square and will make a nice lap quilt or wall hanging. Candy Heart is made from my pattern that was published in Jelly Roll Inspiration.
This makes my tenth UFO for the year! Woohoo! Just two more to go....in November I will finish the Pink Embroidery quilt. I have already got a head start on it since I decided to hand quilt it...I am using wool batting and I am in love! When this one is done I plan to hand quilt a queen size for myself with this luscious batting. So soft and luxurious feeling! Don't forget to set your clocks back tonight...it's going to be lovely to sleep in :)
