|Heart Mock Up|
|Close Up of Hearts with their textured backdrop|
|Reverse Side of 3-D hearts-hot pink felt|
While I love my little polka dot heart, it was scrapped for smaller, loftier hearts that were all designed to hang slightly off balance.
Great care was then taken to stitch the heart ornaments into the quilt background while taking even greater care not to stitch over them when adding quilted texture into the solid centers with free motion escargot in the black squares and walking foot square spirals in the white squares.
|"Love & Embellish Your World"|
And to complement the ombre yarn used for the heart ornaments, I found this great ribbon fabric for my quilt back. While I entitled this quilt "Love & Embellish Your World", only after the label was attached and bound did I dub it "Embellish Your World with Love."
I will admit that I really liked this quilt and was very tempted to keep it for myself. But I am hoping it will help raise some funds to support the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles and all that they do to promote fiber art! You can bid on this piece and the others that will be on display in March through April.
