I've started swapping blocks, thanks to Diane (the Cheshire Quilter) and I have also joined in with the challenge in her quilt group. One of the topics for Diane's blocks was this heart design so I thought it would be appropriate if this was my first choice to complete in time for Valentine's Day so it can serve as a greeting from me to you!
Have a very special day and appreciate all the love you share.
The other day I showed this picture below of my start for the challenge. Diane sent me 12 charm squares and I could make anything I wished from them, for a swap.
Before I continued I removed the few dark squares as I felt that they just didn't tone in and on this picture they stick out like a sore thumb.
Next stage I lined and edged the strips, sandwiching them with light batting.
Some super fabrics there and a lovely colour palette.
The four strips were joined at their bases like the spokes of a windmill.
Then when the sides were joined up, hey presto! it made a simplified version of the Windmill Bag.
I do hope that whoever gets it in the draw, likes it!
