Iron Craft #2- Hearts and Flowers

As usual--a little old and something new!

For the old-and still in use today--

My creation
A front door welcome, stuffed Valentine angel, a Valentine pin and stuff from Sophie and Lucas.

Now for the NEW--while putting out my "old" decorations, I decided I would like a mat to put under some candles on a chest in my dining room. A perfect project for Challenge 2! So off to check my "stash" where I had a lot of Valentine fabric from past years. I also had a quilt heart square pattern among my "stuff". I used the square pattern IMG_1833

and then multiplied it by 4
and I had my mat.

 I quilted it with different size hearts. IMG_1841

Unfortunately, I used white thread and it doesn't show up to well, so I have drawn out the pattern I made up.


 All in all, I am pleased with my project!

Mom- I love the little quilt. Nice job. And you always say you don't know what to make. Way to go.

Great project. I knew that you would step it up for Valentine's Day. I love the way that you decorate for ALL holidays. Great work.

Great quilting. Did you hand quilt the hearts or use the machine?
