Patchwork Heart Quilt Top with HSTs

I finally feel like I know what I'm doing!  Yesterday, I got the center of this Heart Quilt completed; then I added the outer ring of patchwork to complete the 64 patch center block.  Then I started on the twelve 16 patch blocks needed to complete the quilt top.

Today, I finished up the outer blocks, spent some time arranging, then rearranging them, trying really, really hard to not have the same fabrics touching!  This afternoon I stitched the whole 49" x 49" quilt top together.

It's a bit breezy today, making photos extra fun.

Heart Quilt Top, the slowness.

I finally found some sewing time, and started to work on this new quilt.  I decided to change it up a bit from the previous versions.  I wanted to make a new one, but not be bored or boring.  I'm really liking this so far.

These are the other two patchwork hearts I made for the centers of quilt tops.

A New Patchwork Heart Quilt Top

I think I'm stuck in a rut, but I'm going for it!  I've decided to make one more Patchwork Heart Quilt.  Like the last one, it's for no one in particular!

These are the FQ fabrics I'm using:
Serenity Entwined Pearl, Ta Dot in Graphite, Triangle Tokens Metallic, Script Honeycomb, Zig Zag in Raspberry, and Bee Damask in Wine. Kona Cotton Solids in Snow, Coal, Ice Frappe, Curry, Pomegranate, and Crimson. Glimma Blueberry Kita, Glimma Fog Kita, Mormor Nopp Eggplant, Mormor Nopp Rubine, Mormo Trassel Mist, Mormor Trassel Myer Lemon, Mormor Blomster Mint, Glimma Dandelion Tove, Sweet Siesta Barcelona Pewter, Sweet Siesta Costa Del Sol Mint.

This is the B&W version, to help me select the darkest values.  I'm always surprised at how some of the colors "read".

The Little Flag Quilt is finished.

I finally put the binding on this Little Flag Quilt.  For the binding I used Navy Honeycomb Dot by Riley Blake Designs.  I dithered between the Dots and solid navy.  When the daughters were here, yesterday, they voted for the Dots.

This quilt has already been claimed by a wonderful gal, who is one of my daughter's best friends.  She's like family and when she asked to buy it, I advised her she couldn't due to her family status.  So this quilt will soon be in the mail, on it's way to Iowa!

Frisco "modeling" the quilt!

Patchwork Heart Quilt Back

I had a lot of fabric pieces leftover, all 3.5 inches wide but different lengths.  I used them to make 5 strips for the center of the quilt back.  

This is the quilt top.

Ben was my helper, today.  Frisco laid under the quilt ladder and barely raised his head when I asked if he wanted to help!

I started writing this post about noon, and I'm finishing up at 5:30 PM.  What took so long?  We had surprise visitors.  Both of my daughters and our grandson Oden.

Bob and Oden.

 Carrie, who lives in North Carolina, Sharon from Orange County and myself.

Now, these girls know how to surprise their parents!  We're having a heatwave, and our AC went out, so we all went to Chili's for an early dinner.

Patchwork Heart Quilt Top is finished

This quilt top took a little longer than I anticipated, for two reasons.  First I wrote a tutorial, as I went.  Second, my husband is ill, and we're trying to get a diagnosis, which involves a lot of time and appointments.  So far, the specialist think he has inoperable cancer, but we're waiting for a biopsy appointment to confirm and to specify which type of cancer.  I post about Bob on the family blog if you're interested.

Now, I need to piece the quilt back for this.

Patchwork Heart Quilt Top progress

I'm making good progress on the new version of the Patchwork Heart Quilt Top.  I got the center 36 patch work done, then worked on the surrounding border.

Now, I have a 64 patchwork block, and I'm ready to put together the 12 sixteen patch blocks that will surround it, to finish the quilt top.

These are the strip sets I've put together for the sixteen patch blocks,  

Hope you had a great weekend, we did!
