Day Five Of Hearts On Fire And My Day

Today is the last day of "Hearts On Fire" and it's so sad to see it end. It's a good day, though, for me to share my project along with some really awesome quilters.


The "Hearts on Fire" challenge was to sew something with a heart that isn't red. My "Frankie Loves You" quilt definitely met the challenge with orange and purple hearts!

Frankie Loves You
50" x 62"


Frankie offers his love...


Moda Grunge fabric was my choice for this quilt


There's an orange button on Frankie's cuff!
 

Cutting out all the hearts was a breeze because I used Crafter's Edge Crossover II and the Nested Hearts 4 1/2" fabric die. I ironed the HeatnBond Lite to the wrong side of fabric and ran it through my machine. Seriously, it was so easy!



You can find "Frankie Loves You" in my Etsy store HERE.


Look who's hopping with me! I know they'd love to have you visit and leave a comment.

a Rafflecopter giveaway 

There are two blog hops coming up...one that was already announced and a new one.

Carla at Creatin' in the Sticks will be hosting a "Stripes" blog hop February 22-25. The challenge is to sew something with stripes. Sounds fun to me! Sign-up info at Creatin' in the Sticks HERE.


I will be hosting the "Salt and Sand" blog hop March 22- 26. The challenge is to sew something in ocean/sand colors and/or ocean creatures. This one should be fun, too...well, I think they are all fun!
Email me if you want to play along.



The Frankie hand and flower applique were so easy with Heat n Bond Lite EZ Print Sheets. I ran the sheets through my inkjet printer...no tracing! Plus, the backing peels off without having to score it with a pin. I love that!


I'm so glad you stopped by!

See you Monday!

Where's The Snow Table Runner

There is no snow happening where I live, but with the help of ThermOWeb's HeatnBond Lite iron-on adhesive and Crafter's Edge Dog Eared Triangles and Snowflake, I have SNOW! 

Well, sort of snow. A 16" x 46" table runner that says "SNOW" is as close as I can get to the cold stuff right now.

Where's The Snow! 

I have shared the how-to-make-this information using the HeatnBond and Crafter's Edge dies on ThermOWeb's blog. Check it out and look around at all the amazing projects you can make.


I love the ease of making triangles with the Crafter's Edge Dog Eared Triangles. They come in lots of sizes! Sewing with a scant 1/4" seam is recommended to get the correct size or use a larger triangle and trim them down. Either way they are awesome to use!


Crafter's Edge also has alphabet dies that are about 3" and make cutting out letters a breeze.



I love my Oliso Mini Project Iron and how easy it is to use. The Crafter's Edge Snowflake die made cutting around all those edges easy, too!


My regular crew was busy, so this Monkey Baby jumped in to help. He tends to get distracted by toys, but he's still fun to have around! 


I hope you have a wonderful snow or no-snow day!
