Well I wasn't able to complete that pinning process because I ran out of pins.  Who knows I may be over pinning now but I'm trying to make up for not pulling the backing tight enough when I pinned in the first place as well as the fact that I quilt with the fabric really loose so I need lots of pins.  Oh and that white marker of mine ran dry so I guess I will have to get a 4th one. 

In the mean time, I have completed 1 row of hearts that is 5 hearts plus a row of sashing.  The sashing part is the hardest because there are so many turns and the quilt is so big.  I love it and think it is beautiful but oh what a pain that part is. 

Today I started and completed another heart and am now starting on some sashing.  My goal is to have it completed by my birthday in October.  My prayer is to be able to take it to Texas and deliver it in person to my aunt so I can see the expression on her face when she sees the quilt for the first time.  Yes she is trusting me completely with this project.  The designing was all mine and all she has seen at this point is what a few of the hearts look like.  She is planning to wait until it is done to see the whole thing in person.  I sure hope she likes it.

I'll take some more pictures soon.  But it is hard to see the progress in the pictures.


  1. Just discovered and joined your blog. Really enjoy the post and the pictures. Your pictures don't have to show great things or progress as far as I am concerned. I just like to see what you're currently doing and perhaps close-ups of the tools you use for quilting and what type of frame you have.I do do alot of quilting so I like to learn from other 'experts':)

  2. Thank you for joining my blog. I'm glad you are enjoying it.

    I will have to take some pictures of the tools I am using. Thank you for the suggestions.
