Valentine's Hearts


I finished my February Hearts, a sew-along designed by Robyn at Daisy Quilts. It was a fun project to finish, for this time of the year!

De February Hearts, een sew-along ontworpen door Robyn van Daisy Quilts is af. Het was een erg leuk project om te maken voor deze tijd van het jaar. De quilt hangt al boven de bank (o:

I was able to find the binding in my stash (o: And, it fits perfectly: white little hearts.

Ik heb de stof voor de rand in mijn voorraad kunnen vinden (o: En die kleine witte hartjes zijn er perfect voor.



This is the February Le Petite, organized by Sherri and Sinta, that I am working on. It is a Schnibbles, my favorite patterns, this time Sweet Spot.
The fabrics I used are from my mother, who was cleaning up her fabric stash. I only had to add the beige solid from my stash. So, once again, no new fabrics bought!

Dit is de Le Petite van februari, die door Sherri en Sinta georganiseerd wordt. Het middenstuk en het eerste deel van de eerste rand is af. Het is opnieuw een Schnibbles, mijn favoriete patronen, dit keer Sweet Spot.
De stofjes heb ik van mijn moeder gekregen, die haar voorraad aan het opruimen was. Ik heb alleen de beige stof hoeven toe te voegen uit mijn voorraad. Dus, opnieuw geen stofjes gekocht!


I finished the top of the Christmas Elves by Gail Pan, but won't show it until I have the whole top finished. Furthermore, I finished the set for a New Beginnings, organized by the Gum Tree Designers, but forgot to take a picture of the set.

De top van de Christmas Elves van Gail Pan is af, maar ik laat pas een foto zien, als de quilt helemaal af is. Verder heb ik het setje voor New Beginnings gemaakt, dat door Gum Tree Designers is georganiseerd, maar ben vergeten een foto ervan te nemen.

Wunderschön ist Dein Herzenquilt geworden. Ich finde es sehr schön zu sehen, welche Farb- bzw. Stoffzusammenstellungen möglich sind, und wie sie aussehen.
Mein Elfenquilt ist inzwischen wohl verpackt und wartet auf die Vorweihnachtszeit 2011.
Dir einen guten Start in die Woche und liebe Grüße

The pastel colours in your February Hearts design look great. I like the other top you are making. those stars are my favourite pattern. I am making a charm square size all around the star as a double quilt. I am interested to see the Christmas Elves.

How wonderful that you finished your little heart quilt in time for Valentine's Day. You did a great job of quilting it since I tried to see the stitches but couldn't. A steady eye and steady hands...

Handmade by Mai zei

Mooi hoor de hartjesquilt, maar ook je le petite wordt mooi. Ben er zelf nog niet aan begonnen. Ben benieuwd naar je elfenquilt

Herzblatt zei

Your February hearts are great...I watched some of the other quilts at "Robyn at Daisy Quilts" but I like your chosen fabrics and colours the most!!
A quilt where you needn`t buy any fabrics is my favourite, because I also have mass of fabrics in all my big Ikea boxes.....But unfortunately I haven`t got a mother who was cleaning up her fabric stash....Can you borrow me your mother for a while??...:-))
Best wishes

Hoi,Hoi,

Ik vind de valentijnhartjesquilt (mooi woord voor scrabble)heel geslaagd. Mam ook trouwens. Ik krijg bij het zien van de kleuren wel trek in spekjes of een suikerspin. Hééérlijk, net als je quilt.

Groetjes
