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.

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!
