Happy Valentine's Day! Appropriately enough I have some little hearts to applique. This is a 6 inch block in the Just Takes 2 quilt (see the link on the side bar). I am doing the needle turn applique by back basting and have loved every stitch. I have missed having a hand applique project and not done one since I finished the Civil War Bride last year. I just can not seem to find the right pattern. I have sort of been looking at Aunt Millie's Garden and the Circuit Rider Quilt, but not committed yet. I am trying to be more careful at choosing quilts, they are such an investment any more.
In the meanwhile I am truly enjoying every block (okay- maybe not so much the Y seams in that house block) in the Just Takes 2 quilt. After I finish the heart block this evening I will have the January blocks finished. Tomorrow more blocks will be published but I will soon catch up because...
TA DA Bella Garden is finished!!!
I hope you all have a good Valentine's Day. February is my month professionally, I am ultrasound technologist in the Heart and Vascular Lab at one of the medical centers here in Omaha. We always do some sort of health screenings on a Saturday in February and this weekend we are doing carotid artery and aorta ultrasound screening. We have been overwhelmed with interest - YEA - and will be screening over 120 this Saturday morning!!!
