a little v-day gift for my little girl. a quilted heart. to hang in her new bedroom. to remind her how much i love her. and always will.
i fell in love with carrie's heart the minute i saw it. i managed to sneak in a bit of sewing yesterday to get this done in time for today. valentine's day. i had never paper pieced anything before. and i learned that you have to add seam allowances to the pieces. well. i just improvised instead. just cut out a bit heart. and drew lines similar to carrie's lines. and started sewing. then i fixed everything i sewed. and it turned out perfectly. i think. (if you want to make one. you can get her free pattern here.)
it would be great to make a new one every year for her. and it would be great to stitch a message on the back of each heart. then she would have a little collection. i think i might be onto something here.
(h-kun didn't get a handmade heart. instead he got some chocolate. some delicious german organic chocolate. and he was happy.)
