Hugs and Kisses Blog Hop~

Thanks Madame Samm and Jane for this blog hop. I love hearts and heart quilts....can't you tell?
"All you need is love....love is all you need..." (Lennon & McCartney)
Applique quilt block. I used machine embroidery stitches on this.

Mug rug I made for a mug rug swap.

This is a potholder and I added a heart to one side.

Pinwheel heart quilt I made.

From the red, white & blue blog hop. A block I made.

Larger purse (I enlarged Madame Samm's coin purse pattern) I made and added the hearts I made out of felt and embellished with sequins and beads.

The other side of the purse with another felt heart.

A little quilt I made several years ago. I made one for each person in a small group that I belonged to. 
Kool-aid dyed batting quilt. I was experimenting with dyeing one day and tried dyeing cotton batting. I got pastel colors. I embroidered by hand and added sequins and beads.
A closer look.
I made this cone hanging from a book by Nancy Halvorsen of Art-to-Heart. All done by hand. I placed some fun little things inside the cone.
Closer look.

These are paper-pieced hearts I made using fabric scraps.
Heart quilt. Mostly made with batik or hand dyed fabrics.
Here's one heart close-up.
I designed an Alphabet Quilt and created a pattern that is sold on Craftsy and here on my blog. I used the same pattern and made this LOVE quilt (as well as the Patchouli Moon Studio quilt I made that hangs in my studio and is also the header name on my blog above)
Close-up of one of the hearts from the corner of the quilt.
Turned it into a neon photo, just for fun.
