I am still sewing away on my Temecula hearts quilt. It's a little late for Valentine's day, but I'll be early for next year! I have all the 9 patch heart blocks finished and on the design wall, but can't figure out which fabric to use for the background squares.
This was my original idea for the center background squares, but I think it looks too busy.
So then I tried a red on white background fabric, but I'm not sure if it works or not?
And then I tried a plain muslin background, and it was much calmer.
But is it too boring?
Do you have a preference or suggestion?
Here I am sewing more heart blocks on my Featherweight.
Of course I had to put on my red shirt to sew my red blocks! My friend Diane loaned me her Featherweight book to read and I found a picture of my Sweet Baby Jayne in this resource book. It was very interesting to read about the history of these machines.
Guess how many finished heart blocks are in that bag?!
There are exactly as many as I need to finish this quilt!
I just need to decide on the background fabric. What's your vote?
