Patched Hearts

So my first blog give-away is ready to be given. There were only two comments but they were good ones by good friends so I am very happy about that.

And, as they will be both be at our quilting group tonight I will do the draw there and personally present the winner with their token quilt. But I do have a little something for the non-winner too.... I dislike "loser" so non-winner it is.

Today I am home alone and have been mucking around in my scraps (I have a lot of them so at times I was literally knee deep!). I have had patched heart tags on my mind for a while now and decided today was the day to start figuring out what I wanted to do. I have spread out in three rooms - kitchen, family room and sewing room and aside from trudging up and down many stairs many times, it is nice to have everything laid out. I am a visual person remember?

I have four almost done - the ribbons and buttons aren't actually sewn on yet, they're just strategically placed for the photo (that's what I intend to work on at Quilting) and I still have to make the labels for the backs.

Of course I embroidered the seams, and the edges are pinked. I tried one with a plain edge but just didn't like it; I would rather a frayed edge but haven't yet figured out how to tear a heart shape! So pinked it is for now.

If you click on the photo you will get an enlarged version and can better see the stitching.

I think these would be fun tag to place on the bags at my Sale next year. That means I need to make about 50....
