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!

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

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

The Frankie hand and flower applique were so easy with Heat n Bond Lite EZ Print Sheets. I ran the sheets through my inkjet tracing! Plus, the backing peels off without having to score it with a pin. I love that!

I'm so glad you stopped by!
