Let's Book It Jan.

Whoops, I have last years badge.

With the end of another month it's time for Let's Book It over at Vroomans Quilts. I'm so glad Sharon decided to continue this linky party, I got rid of 4 magazines this month, the pile is getting smaller. 

This month I found my quilt in The Quilter Magazine Dec/Jan 2010-11

I almost passed this quilt by because the colors didn't appeal to me

but, I went back through with my mind on hearts for Feb. and decided this was good with some changes.

I changed the colors and the size of the block (actually I didn't read any of the directions) and came up with this

My favorite greens and aquas with hot pink and that splash of orange made it perfect. 

I had just the right fabric for the backing
Can you see those tiny pink hearts?

Then I quilted it light in spots and heavy in others, so it has great texture while staying nice and soft.

I love it! It's a new year and the perfect time to join in the fun, you're working off of your own punch list so no excuses.

Later Gators,
