WHERE LOVE GROWS from Nestlings By Robin

Thank you SIMPLY MODERNE for publishing this fun 
combination of paper piecing and applique'.
 Meet WHERE LOVE GROWS!
I did pretty well matching my colors
to make it cheerful.
Paper piecing trick: 
I collect notions and such and one of 
the items are the old heavy metal irons.
They are great weights for pressing
a pile of paper pieced blocks FLAT!!

There is an addition of some bias strips 
to the simple paper pieced blocks 
 to create the larger branches. 
I also stitched in some 
little skinny ones for texture.
Then my favorite part...the APPLIQUE'!!!
This is raw edge ...

heartily stitching along . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

I've had to work all four (10-hour) days this week.  It's been long!  LOL!

I made just a little progress on my Love Sampler project.  It's really so sweet to stitch on . . . 
But not as much progress as I had planned. Scrolling through Instagram on Sunday, I stumbled upon a Blackwork SAL hosted by Peppermint Purple, and I chased that squirrel down.  I have been fascinated by blackwork for some time, but hadn't ever tried it.  This seemed to be the perfect opportunity to give it a go.
At first I though starting six weeks behind ...

all the hearts . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

Finally got myself over to Hobby Lobby (I had a gift card) to pick out a frame for my Snow Sampler. Bonus -- all the frames were 50% off!  So this is the one I picked out . . .
Isn't it sweet?!  Joc has a silver and blue snowman that's so cute and would look perfect in this vignette.  But for now, I'm pleased with my jar of melted snowman, my snowman book, and the little blue and white heart, which help me feel like at least we're transitioning.  LOL!

I got a few more hearts free handed to ...

Put a Heart on it Project Quilting 11.3 from Stitchin at Home

Put a heart on it, challenge three. I can't believe how fast this one came together. I started at 9:30 AM and by noon I had a finished project. I do have to confess that some of the hearts were already cut out, they were left overs from when I made 'Pinky' for my granddaughter. One of the applique methods in my tool box is Crafted Applique'. I keep extra pieces between sheets of wax paper and just pull them out when I need them.


extra pieces of treated fabric using the Crafted Applique method are stored between ...

Sewing Projects for a Full Heart (and Bobbin)! from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

When someone is covered in a cozy, warm quilt, they are reminded that someone sat at a sewing machine for hours, carefully piecing and stitching, with them in mind. A handmade table runner sitting on the family dining table shows a loving home to all who feast there. To be gifted a wall hanging is a reminder that they are loved by its maker.

Valentine’s day is one of the best holidays to make for because it’s about love and we LOVE to make! Here are some sweet as pie project ideas:

Charm Quilts from Ann Quilts

Well, I think this is a great topic for this put-a-new-calendar-on-the-wall and make-those-happy-wishes time of year.

Charm quilts, as the name indicates, are made with thoughts of good luck in mind.  I'd heard the folklore that the magic happens because each piece is a unique fabric....but if one and only one fabric has been used twice, the quilt has a special magic.  So that's what I did.  My charm quilts were made for my babies because, as a quilter, I of course had to make them each a very special quilt.

I am prompted to think about ...

Hearts Everywhere! from Snippets of a Quilter


There are many different versions of hearts showing up all over Instagram. Seeing them got me in the mood to make a little heart quilt. This heart pattern is in the Vintage Farm Girl book, I'm making the larger size heart, I think it finishes at 4". My Farm Girl Vintage quilt is on hold until I get more of the Moda dot background. It's been ordered, hope it won't be long now.
My Hello Darling layer cake quilt in Bonnie and Camille fabrics is quilted and washed. I love the crinkled looked of a freshly washed ...
