i [heart] sewing: heart applique quilt

It's been a long time since I've sewn. A very long time.

What, you think I'm exaggerating? Well, considering the layer of dust that I had to wipe off my computer...sewing machine

But I sewed all weekend and I realized that I really miss sewing. I'm working on a special project for a friend's baby (and I am assuming she doesn't read this blog so I'm going to share what that is... if you do, just pretend to be surprised!)

I'm making a baby's quilt, with staggered hearts.

So I cut out a ton of these hearts (my husband helped)! And then I sewed them to the top level of the quilt before sewing everything together. All that's left is the final edging and details... to be unveiled once the project is completed.

Overall, I have to admit that I'm pretty pleased with myself and the way the project has turned out. There are a couple small glitches, but considering how long its been since I've sewn, and that I've never done a quilt before... yeah... I did pretty darn good!

Once I get more thread and can finish the last bits, I'll be sure to share!
