Freespirit Friday-Folk Art Hearts
It is only a few weeks before Valentine’s Day. This is a vacation that for us Midwest lies perfectly in the deepest heart of winter. This is a time when we need a bit of holding hands, a little encouragement and a big dose of color.
For this FreeSpirit Friday of this week we are presenting my simple silhouette folk art bleeding heart pattern. This series of 18 inch quilts is designed to showcase your favorite fabrics.
Our first heart is my latest FreeSpirit collection, Folk Tales. The border material is called Flowered Coverlet and the background is essential points. The solid black silhouette and red heart are the designer essentials solids from FreeSpirit. We have my 12 wt. Sew cheeky threads for quilting (suitable for 50 wt .-% in the bobbin). It really adds a zipper to electricity.
The next hearts are made from vintage Sassaman fabrics, some of which may also be buried in your supply. This is made with an early bird edge and again 12wt thread for quilting. This piece has a nice floral traditional look.
After all, we have a heart from the Hot House Garden collection. This piece is actually part of a larger blanket that hangs in my living room. It’s definitely a nod to Mexican folk art that I love.
There is still a lot of time to whip one of these little jewels for your Valentine’s Day. So search your stock and get stitches!
