Originally this blog hop was going to be in February, so I had planned something Valentine's Day related. I wanted to try paper piecing, and I thought heart would be pretty easy. This was my second attempt, but alas, it was to big for what I had planned. So I made a third one (the first ended up in the trash) and fit it into my quilt.
In my family the movie, The Princess Bride is a
particular favorite and for many years now, my husband has responded to many things I have said with "As you wish" which fans of the movie will recognize as Wesley's way of saying" I love you" to Buttercup.
So I had planned to put this into a small quilt for Valentine's Day for him, as my gift. I got the heart made and the words done on separate pieces of fabric and put it all together with a red border.
I have done several pieces of quilting lately with pebble quilting and he really likes it, so naturally, I decided that's how it should be quilted.
