Sew My Stash Challenge- Hearts


After talking about wanting to try something new yesterday during a Sew-In with one of my guilds, I went home and got out my fabric and pencils. 100% stash fabrics, thread, and pencils.

I am not going to pretend it is great but I love it anyway. I used Inktense watercolor pencils, did some stitching with variegated thread and then hand stitched with another variegated thread and there you have it.

This is my progress last night but it was getting to dark to see well.  The fmqing was really quilt fun but the tension was off over half of it before I knew it.
Still, I was able to do something new and fun for me.  Bring on the hand sewing too! I never really liked embroidery when I was little but I think I would like to do some more sloooow stitching! :) I don't mind hand binding so maybe this is my new thing...who knows?

  1. I love it! The variegated thread around the heart is a perfect touch. I would likely add echo quilting lines in light pink threads out to the binding because I love hand stitching... but it's lovely as is, and you have all of February to enjoy your heart!

  7. This is just great, you did a wonderful job on it! Got any bits of pretty yarn laying around? I could see some couching added to it and I like Kathy's idea about echo quilting around the outside of the heart. A great wallhanging for Valentine's Day!!!
