Ready for Borders.....

The blocks I started working with earlier this week are now in quilt tops that are ready for borders.

The heart blocks are string pieced, and were from a lotto block swap back in 2006.  The top one will get two borders - a narrow black Kona and then a black w/bright print of some sort.

The bottom one is only 38" by 40" so it needs borders top and bottom before adding one all the way around to bring it up to size.  Although I'm thinking that I may go in and make one more block to make the bottom point on the heart.   Haven't fully decided tho because I don't know if I really want to do that much frog-stitching.

Both of the finished quilt tops will be going to Sunshine quilts.

Gratitudes:
1. Weather has warmed back up.  =)

2. Praying Friends.

It looks like a heart as it it. Who says hearts have to be pointy? Both are great tops! I realized just now that when people say I get a lot done, I don't think so because I always compare it to what you get done. LOL Now THAT's a lot!

Such a beautiful top, love the bright scrappy hearts and they stand out so well against the black! Thanks for mentioning where the block is from. I have all the Block Lotto yearly indexes saved in my Evernote so it was very easy to find. This is my favorite of all the heart block patterns I've seen. Blessings to you <3

I like the hearts in a heart setting! I"m not official, but I aim for 40 x 60 as smallest for the charities.
