I (Heart) 2 Sew

I have been doing pattern testing for  Lorna @ Sew Fresh Quilts. She posted both an I (HEART) TO SEW wallhanging and a I (HEART) TO QUILT one. I love both. The Quilt one is closer to my heart tho. I volunteered to test the patterns for her.

I ordered a pack of the ombre solids to do the I (HEART) 2 QUILT wallhanging, but chose to do the SEW one in stash so I could get started. That's what prompted me to clean out my stash cupboard. Golly Gosh Gee (and a bunch of other nastier words), I am amazed how really, really messy that cupboard was is. I've cleaned out the greens, blues, pinks, purples so far. Yesterday I bought a couple Sterilite bins to audition for size. If this is the right size, I'll order a bunch on Amazon. {Love Amazon! You can find anything!}

Here are my color pulls:

I had fun pulling the fabrics.

Here's the finished flimsy:

It was a pretty windy day. My highly-paid quilt holder had to move around to several positions on the deck to find a quiet spot to get a good picture.

My package of solids came and now I'll start on I (HEART) 2 QUILT.

I thought these would look wonderful on the back of a jacket/shirt to wear to a quilt show. Maybe someday...

Thanks, Lorna, for the opportunity to test these for you. I am so amazed at what you do! These will have a place of honor in my house.

I urge all of you, readers, to check out Lorna's patterns.

Such a pretty sample you have made, Lin! I love your fabric choices! And am glad this has encouraged you to get your cupboard organized, too. Your finish is fantastic!

Nice job Lin! I love how you chose prints, it's a great variation. How did those tubs work out for organizing your cupboard?
