Heart of Mine Mystery Quilt Part 2

Welcome Back

As promised here are my choices for the quilt.  As you can see, I’m going completely scrappy with this quilt that has anything to do with Valentines such as hearts, flowers, etc.  My goal, for me at least, is to use up as much scrap fabric up from noodles to FQ.   Of course, please feel free to do as you want, but me, I really love the feeling of FINALLY using up bits and pieces that take up space.  And by using them they turn into some of the prettiest quilts ever as they are so scrappy!   Not to mention, it frees up some space in my bins for even more scraps! 

The pictures below all have to do with Valentine’s Day in one way or another, from hearts to lips and even Snoopy.  As you can see there is a good range of reds, pinks, lights and some darks.   You will still need your white for background but just a hint:  Some of the background will be red while the other is in white, just like a mirror image or a photo negative.  You’ll get the idea once the patterns  come up.   Don’t forget your light to medium green and a solid or small print of deep pink or red for the applique, but that will be later on after the blocks are made. 

Here are my choices.  Hopefully I will use up most of it as we go along.  I haven’t weeded through all of it yet, and matched it up to see if they play well together yet, but with a scrappy quilt and small pieces, more than likely it will turn out great! 

Now that you have an idea of what to use, have fun stash diving while I get the first block ready.  Should be posted sometime tonight or early tomorrow morning at the latest!

Next post will be Monday night or Tuesday morning.

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
