Hearts 2 Round Robin

Over the years I've swapped hearts with many ladies on the internet and I've always wanted to do something with them. I recently joined a Round Robin on the CQI list entitled Hearts. I knew I wanted to use one of the hearts I had swapped I just needed to figure out how.

After several trial and error attempts I came up with this block. I'm really excited to send it out for the ladies to work on in the RR. I used a lot of swap fabrics also to make this truly a group block. Pat Winter pieced the heart and now five ladies will stitch around it. I plan to ask them to add as many pansies and dragonflies as they want!

Don't you think this is going to be a cool block?



When the block comes home I plan to use this gold to make the borders of the block.

Ohhhhh Karen you have CQd such a nice clean block with tonnes or space for embellishing - WOW!!!

BUT most of all I LOVE your little heart in the centre!!! Is that sort of 3-D or is it flat to the block?

Just lovely and I too can't wait to see the finished block back home and blogged here again! Have fun in your RR.

Karen: I just joined Facebook too. I sent a friend request to you. How did you get the facebook logo for your blog? I am lost on that site. Can't figure out how even to change friends who are relatives to "family"..........LOL

Karen, this is such a lovely block. Your center heart from Pat is a wonderful addition.

I'm nervous though, I'm going to be the first to work on it. I hope I can do it justice!
