Out of season.

In early February I was on a kick to make some Valentine's Day projects. 

First, I dug this project out of my stash.  Bali Love Songs...a free pattern by Hoffman Fabrics using a Bali Pop strip set called Cherry.  Although, you could use any strip set I used the called for fabrics...both the strip set and the yardage.  I only just finished sewing the binding on last week. 

I found it hard to get a good picture that showed the richness of the batiks.  
I also finally quilted and bound this little cutie.  I bought the pattern and fabric in February...during the same urge to work on Valentine's Day projects.  It has been folded in half and...oops...the crease shows.  It would be nice to have enough wall space to hang everything but then again...who is cleaning a house that size?

The soft pinks were pretty and outside my usual color palette.  

The pattern is a This & That called Candy Hearts.  Originally I thought I'd add words to the hearts but then decided I liked how they looked. 
At this rate, maybe I'll have something patriotic to show around Halloween.
Happy Stitching.


  1. Both are beautiful. Congratulations on your finishes.

  2. Really nice job on both! I'll bet that batik one is gorgeous in person... Lack of wall space is a problem for me, too--I think that is why I stick to mostly small pillows and pinkeeps!

    Happy 4th to you!

  3. I love hearts any time of the year! Beautiful quilts and I love the quilting on the little one too.
