An update. I am still on track. One heart every day....well, not every day.. but definitely seven hearts each week. That means that (as of today) there are 104 hearts in the quilt-to-be.......

It is really growing fast!
Something is starting to happen with these hearts. They create conversations and swaps (ooooooh that is a nice fabric..... you know what happens) all around. In my direct environment (sister, mum, friends, neighbour, etc.) seven people have now hopped on the hearts train! I have no idea how many people are participating, but it would be fun to find out......It is becoming more and more fun. Should you wish to hop on board too, the pattern is available (for free) here.

I mentioned in my last post that I did a lot of stitchery. This one is - appropriately - named Sisters. I made it for my sister, it will probably become a pillow for her garden...... But I am not sure yet. The pattern was another freeby from Red Brolly. I love, love, LOVE that site....

Another completed stitchery. Another freeby! This one is part of a series. A quilt along, hosted by Shelly Pagliai. The blog focusses on the diary of Hazel Ilene. It is a brilliant read and some really amazing blocks. This is block 4 of the Summer Wildflowers. Find out more here

Lots of love,


  1. Je hartjesquilt ziet er prachtig uit!!
    Heel anders dan de mijne... die is met zwarte ondergrond ;-)

    Succes met de rest.

    Groet Mandy

  2. Zo leuk al die hartjes! En wat bijzonder dat je heel wat anderen enthousiast hebt gemaakt. Schitterend stitchery werk! Dat kan ik nou echt niet en vind het zo mooi om te zien. Groetjes, Annemarie

  3. Mandy, een zwarte ondergrond kan heel mooi zijn (ik heb ook een zwarte ondergrond). Heleen, dank je wel voor de verslaving en voor het toekomstige kussen!

  4. I love your work! Especially the hearts!!
