Happy Hearts Day

 
I made this scrappy heart several years ago but being Valentines and all
I thought I'd recycle the picture again. It was and easy and fun
project and I still love them. Just fabric tied around
a Styrofoam heart. I used scraps and when I look
at it, each scrap has a quilty memory attached.
Don't you just love that about fabric.
Sewing and quilting for others is so emotional,
at least for me it is.

 
I was messing around last night after finishing a special order,
and created this slab. The flower fabric is vintage, Yeah Baby,
Oh so 60's. I scored a few yards of it at the thrift, I can tell
it's not 100% cotton but it is really soft. I am not sure if I will continue
making more blocks and create a quilt of it or not.
What do you think?
 
This is all the information I have on the fabric.
It is a happy fabric though!
