Share the Love...

Last week Lea Anne at Podunk Pretties
posted a challenge being given by
using this free pattern offered by


free heart pat (2) 

The Share the Love Challenge challenges us
 to make one of these quilts and give it to
someone in need.
Lea Anne Double Dog Dared me to participate.


Well,
It just so happens that a dear friend of mine is having
surgery tomorrow after a long medical ordeal. 
He is one of the kindest, most generous,
loving people I know and this little quilt will go to him.

I started piecing the heart yesterday
and finished the first one last night.

My little heart is being made with
2 1/2" squares instead of the 5" squares
used in the Fat Quarter Shop pattern.


Chain stitching the HST's
 


Cutting the HST's to size.
 

Top all pieced and ready for quilting.
 

My finished Heart Quilt will be delivered this week.
 
 

This whole process took about 3 hours.
My second one is on the wall,
waiting to be sewn together.
 

This little heart will be put away
until another person needs a little love.

Join in on this challenge!
I Double Dog Dare you.
:)

Please visit Patchwork Times to see what others
are creating.

Happy Quilting!
