This is what I've been working on as I sit inside at my new sewing machine trying to stay warm. It literally warms my heart and satisfies my love for the color red. I pulled out a pattern purchased last year, pulled the reds and creams from my stash along with some greens, and got to work on something scrappy.
a row of pinwheel blocks, another border, then corner pieces of green and cream squares and four pinwheel blocks also bordered.
Finally a red stop border and an outer border of a small red print
with corner heart blocks finished off with applique leaves.
I credit my new machine for accuracy and the ability to make this little 35 inch square of loveliness. I would sew and then the pattern would say, "It should measure ___ inches" and it would! Dual feed - where have you been all my life?!
I need to finish it up. I did go shopping to find the perfect binding. I'm almost afraid to quilt it for fear that I will spoil it. Pattern is "Love Grows" by T-nee's Pieced Quilts.
