9 Of Hearts.

At last I'm able to post again. I've changed my internet provider and hit a few problems. it's all sorted now so I'm back.

I've made several versions of my '9 of Hearts' Quilt, each one different. Some have been sold so I only have two left in my collection.

This little one was made around 2003 and still is one of my favourites.

Each heart has been cut differently and needleturned before using embroidery stitches to embellish.

This one is larger and hangs in my bedroom. Each heart is embroidered and a little quote has been sewn around each one.

I had enough scraps of fabric to make this sort of 'crazy' heart which is in a frame, simple piecing and  lots of stitching .

I've decided to revisit '9 of Hearts' using this beautiful French General fabric by Moda.

It's been sitting patiently waiting to be sewn and now I have the inspiration.
Keep watching my progress.
