I have been trying to blog here about my quilts as I do them
but I still get lax on coming here. I am working now on a quilt for my sister.
It is going to be full of hearts and love.
When I am working on them I test different ideas. This is one of the
first log cabin hearts I did the other day and I think it was just an epic fail.
The "v" in the top is just too shallow.
But I think the second try was better. Although I must say that when
I am putting these together and before they have been trimmed up
I am always thinking these are the ugliest blocks.
But once I have them quilted and get them trimmed up I am starting to
think they are so much prettier. There is just something about getting
that unfinished batting edge trimmed away that starts giving them
that neat quilt block look. Plus for these I just love how the red
compliments the blue denim.
Below are previews of the other heart blocks I've made to go in it.
They will be be interspersed with some of the pocket blocks that I have.
Log Cabin Hearts!
