First 2016 Finish

HAPPY 2016!!!

Seriously, I can't believe that it's been almost 3 years since my last post!  Time flies!  Many things happened and many quilts and projects were done...  Oh, but where to begin...  so why not just jump right back in and start right where I am.

Back in October 2015, my LQS received the new Moda First Crust Valentine's collection, and I fell in love.  I picked up a Jelly Roll, a background, and Heartstrings pattern.  

Started working on the blocks....

This Heartstrings pattern worked up quickly and easily, soon it turned into a top.  In December, I took it to the shop and quilted it.  My LQS (Quilter's Cocoon) has a Handi Quilter for rent there, but since I work there, they let me used it cause I wanted Surfin' Hearts quilting on this quilt.  I love my LQS; they are so good to me.

The quilt sat through the holidays until last week... 
            .... then binding on...
  ...... and finish!  
I make lots of samples for Quilter's Cocoon, so this quilt will get to go to Road to California next week.  I hope this will help them sell all of the collection.

Here is another Heartstrings quilt (shop sample) with Kaffe Fassett fabrics.  Cute huh?  I didn't make the  top, but I did quilted and bound the quilt.

And this is the pattern.

I have to add this last picture of my cat, Tiger.  He loves to keep me company while I sew.  Perfect place to take a cat nap don't you think?

Ahhh.... it feels good to be back!
See you again soon,
