Quilt U Be Mine Reveal

Happy Valentine’s Day!!  I hope someone gives you a chocolate heart and that you give one to someone else today!  I have to buy a card and some chocolate for DH tomorrow.  Today I was super busy at work and feel lousy.  I think the stomach flu is not entirely finished and I haven’t been getting enough sleep.

But February 14th is the reveal day for the Quilt U Be Mine round robin.  I LOVE my round robin piece.  I really liked some of the others that I worked on but this piece suits me to a T.

Here is the centre block that I sent out. A fun little dancing heart.


Bea added the first border – geese, hearts and simple strips on the sides.  I love how the swirling fabric creates so much motion.


Edy added a scrappy border all around.  And you know I love scrappy.  Look at all the hearts she added!


And then Lisa added paper piecing and the finishing border.  LOVE IT!!Here’s what the whole thing looks like.  (Hmm – there’s some blur in all these pictures?! What’s that about??)


SO SO PRETTY!  Thank you to my three awesome round robin partners!

I had big plans to finish it before today as a wall hanging or table runner, but really, when did I think I was going to do that???

I’m off to bed.  Please check out Michele's blog to have a peak at all of the beautiful Quilt U Be Mine quilts.
