Procrastination at it’s best

So, another month almost gone and I have YET to uncover my HQSS – at this rate, I will have to take time off of work to try to meet my goal of quilting one top each month.  Good Grief.

So, what did I do this month…this awesome top:


So I adapted this pattern from the Sew Red: Sewing & Quilting for Women’s Heart Health (Stitch Red) because I saw it on Pinterest and I had to make it. This is the second one I have made, the first I did in pink for Breast Cancer Awareness, this one I did for a few reasons, but 2 of them being it’s both of our favorite color – Purple – and coincidentally it is our sons birth stone color – it’s fate, I tell you, FATE!  It’s almost square and I haven’t had a chance to take a picture of it outside yet – it’s still gets dark too early, but maybe when I get it quilted it will be nice and bright out (and probably a different decade also). I extended the pattern an extra heart, to make it a bit larger, but I love, love, love how it turned out.

One other little thing you may notice about the top of the hearts…they are done like cathedral windows. I included the 10 minute quilt blocks tutorial/instructions to make the tops more rounded.  It was tedious, but I so love how it turned out. I was going to do the bottoms as well, but I am glad I didn’t do them that way, it would have looked weird.


So, I still have 6 days to get something else completed. Maybe I will finally get my ironing platform (because it’s huge) finished off so I can use that to make my quilt sandwiches – wait, i have 6 sandwiches waiting in the wings already…oh boy!!!
