Heart Quilt Completed

I finished sewing the binding down on the commissioned heart quilt yesterday afternoon.  It was commissioned by a friend for a mutual friend who has been going through some tough times lately.

Some Specs -

-- Blocks are 9"finished with a 3" border
-- There are 76 hearts in the whole quilt - a happy circumstance because the gal it is for (and I!) graduated in 1976.  And nope, it wasn't planned that way.
-- The blue block has 9 hearts in it alone.
-- 6 or more different white-on-white prints were used for the block backgrounds and a multitude of different red prints for the
-- All fabric and the batting was from stash
-- Hearts were satin-stitched down
-- First time I used a corner triangle label - made it super easy and this won't be the last time that I do labels this way!

And now it's time to continue working on the teddy bear commission and start the swan commissioned quilt.

Gratitudes:
1. The storm damage yesterday was not worse that what it was

2. People are starting to notice the weight I've lost....a definite encouragement to keep going!
