Day 161 - Loopy Hearts

I've been back to thinking about heart designs this week and came up with this design. I definitely love spirals best, but hearts are a close second!

I've also been playing with loops, which are very fun, easy to stitch, and produce beautiful texture.

free motion quilting | Leah DayToday I'm in full scale production mode! I'm finally finishing up several projects that have been long overdue.

First, I uploaded my new gallery and photos of three new quilts that I made anywhere from 3-6 months ago. You can check out all the new photos and details right here.

I've also made a list of all my deadlines for different quilts and projects for the next several months. It's really nice to be able to see everything clearly on one list.

Finally, I finished my Winter Wonderland Quilt Pattern. This has been in the works since January and is now available from my quilt shop at the above link.

So while you watch how to stitch Loopy Hearts, I'm off to mark and quilt more blocks!

Difficulty Level - Beginner. This is a really easy design! Just keep the loopy heart shape in your mind and don't start daydreaming about loopy stars and you'll be fine.

Design Family - Edge to Edge. This design is stitched from one edge of your quilting space to the other. This means it will work great in open, uncomplicated areas.

Directional Texture - All directions. While most edge to edge designs have a horizontal or vertical texture, I really think loopy hearts has enough movement to be counted as an all direction design.

Suggestions for Use - What do you think about using Loopy Hearts in the sashing of your next quilt? Imagine the heart shapes expanded to fill the space perfectly. I think it will make an easy and beautiful way to finish and area that's usually left blank.
