My Sweet Tooth of Cuteness

I did my annual photo album on facebook of my year of projects. I was missing a few that didn't get photographed, but the end result was amazement at how much I accomplished. I had over 21 quilted projects, 3 big quilt tops, over 30 blocks for exchanges, handfuls of zipper pouches, messenger bags, commissioned projects, mending jobs... With all of this sewing, how can it be that I still have a fabric stash that just won't quit?

I whipped up a sweet little confection, this hearts-a-flutter mini quilt, using scraps, and corduroy for the dimensional hearts:

A Walk in the Woods leftovers.

I used left over bias binding from an apron project. It is machine quilted with glossy pearl grey Glide.
Then I finished a UFO of 4 left over heart blocks from a lotto win 2 years ago. I pieced, bordered, and machine quilted this little sweetie, and now to hand sew the binding. Kaffe is perfect!

Lovely Valentine Table Topper
These little projects have no purpose but to please me, to satisfy my sweet tooth of cuteness, and to remind me that love is real.
