"Be Mine"

Yesterday I decided with all the hearts that have been floating around blogland I would make myself a Heart runner .This pattern is by Kim van Rossum of Harbour Quilt Company and is a quick runner to make with fusible applique being my method of choice in this project . In the original pattern Kim has stars in each of the hearts but I preferred just hearts and since this project was a spur of the moment decision it was necessary to use what was on hand so the border is not your typical colour for Valentines Day but hey this way it can be used for more than Feb if the mood strikes me right . Since I am also REALLY looking forward to spring I added hearts with butterflies and small flowers but the truth be known they were the only reds I had that sort of matched the others in color range ;-)
The sun is finally shining again and the temperatures are moderate but more snow in the forecast for tomorrow so I will enjoy the sunshine while we have it . Hope the sun is shining where ever you are and have a nice day .Thanks for stopping by. Hugs Sheila

  2. Hey Sheila! I really like the border you used for that runner...and like you said, you can use it often instead of just once a year! I really like the way those hearts are kinda curved.... so cute!

    Enjoy the moderate weather while you can...we are in for some colder temps this week, too! :o( But any day the sun is shining is a great day in my book!

    XOXO,

  3. That is a most adorable runner and I like that you will be able to use it for other days besides just Valentine's Day. I don't personally make too many seasonal items so this seems like a good solution :D

    It's snowing here today too and we are promised the same batch of snow that you are, but the sun will shine in my heart nonetheless!

    Hugs and blessings,
    Sue
