So, I had the vision of a perfect little valentine patchwork heart pillow dancing in my head....
I loved making the patchwork....a classic that just always looks right.
What's better than pretty valentine colors....bursting with delicate, sweet florals?
Then I quilted the heart to make it sort of puffy-like.
And the stitching.....I always love me a good stitch. It just made the heart pop...don't you think?
And then something terrible happened....
After I attached the heart to the white fabric, I cut it too small. There went the pillow idea. But I thought it still might work for a little mini.
So...I carried on binding my perfect little patchwork heart.
And then I hung it....
And then I took pictures....
And then I noticed it....
My little perfect patchwork heart had turned into my little wonky patchwork heart!
How could this have happend?
The thought occured to me that I could take off the binding, try squaring it up, and then re-binding it, but I'm not sure it's in me. I know someone who would!....if only she lived closer and I could bribe her into fixing my mini. Wouldn't that be lovely? :)
My daughter loves it, so I think I'll leave it at that and cross my fingers on my next WIP.
Meanwhile, I'll leave you with a better impression of my 'perfect little valentine patchwork heart'.
