Hearts



I decided I needed to make a heart runner in my colours. This pink one was for the class I was teaching. My cold is much better Thanks to my friends secret remedy.  These hearts are using the 5" squares and 2 1/2" squares, so much easier than the first one.

I had a good Birthday this week. A couple of friends, my daughter and I went shopping and lunch. We visited Two Thimbles, my favourite shop. Two of the girls are new quilters and hadn't been to the shop before. They had such fun looking at everything, I didn't think they wanted to leave.  It's fun to watch the excitement of new quilters, they are so keen to learn everything. I forget how something so simple is all new to them. A magnet pincushion is a something that wouldn't even occur to me as a new toy. I had a blast shopping with them.

The biggest surprise was from my DH, he gave me a wonderful bracelet for my Birthday. I'm so spoiled and lucky to have such a great guy in my life.

Happy Quilting!

The fabrics you chose for your table runner are lovely. I especially like your use of the Crimson Bouquet red for the border. That line of fabric takes just the right project and you found it.
