Affairs of the Heart Quilt

The Affairs of the Heart quilt has to be one of my favorite quilts. I started it as a class and it has eight blocks and a border that are appliqués using a different technique for each one. The class really gives you a good sense of which techniques work for different projects and which techniques you like more than others. It also gave you an added bonus of color for each block.

I know that I have shown you some of these pictures but I had a couple more to show you. It has definitely inspired me to maybe do another appliqué quilt this year.

I finished the binding on a quilt that has a panel in the center of it. It made a quick holiday quilt to put together. I quilted trees in the outside border, holly and berries in the inside border, and stars and loops as an overall design on the inside. Yea! Two quilts with binding so far and one less OMOS (one more on the stack).

“The work you do and the ripples you set in motion are likely to last a long time. Choose the influences you share with care and integrity”. I hope to share the new project in the studio tomorrow. It is time to start on the next client quilt and I will give you a hint…brightly colored feathers are circling around.
