Using scraps....fabric heart

fabric heart

I have long been an admirer of the work of Terri Stegmiller, and have particularly liked the mosaic technique that she uses on some pieces. She recently posted a tutorial for this heart quilt, and I wanted to have a go.

A special friend has a big birthday on Valentines day, so I have started to put together my own heart.
The colours have been chosen to co-ordinate with  a lovely grey felted cowl scarf that I bought from this Etsy shop

I plan to add some french knots and maybe some beads and turn it into a hanging heart ornament.
Stay tuned!

  1. Odd we are thinking along similar lines - I've a flower project to do and I was going to use hand dyes (fabric and threads) and french knots - great minds! or the other?

  2. Whenever I see your projects like this I know for a fact that you have an infinite amount more patience than I do and I envy you that. This will make a beautiful gift.

  4. they look really nice - the best part they are not Valentines pink (yes I have something against pink). I'm loking forward to see the result of the embellishment (I think I never used that word before, if it is a word?).

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
