New Idea

There are probably other projects I should have been working on, but I had a new idea. So, I had to see what it would look like.


For now, it is called “Cross My Heart.”  This isn’t a great picture, particularly against the light floor. Also, binding will change the look a lot.  That said, what do you think? Should the heart be larger?  Or sort of a surprise waiting to be discovered?

  1. Beautiful! I wouldn’t change a thing. Just add the borders, and you have a winner! I don’t know how you designers do it…I don’t have a creative gene in my body. It amazes me – some of the designs people come up with, seemingly without a second thought! Enjoy your creativity, and those of us who have none will do our best to follow your instructions so we have pretty stuff too!! 🙂

  2. I love the quilt with the heart! The title is perfect! If the hidden heart bothers you, you could move it down into the white area. However, when you quilt it you can make it pop out of the checkered area it’s now in.

  3. I was looking at the photo first and then ooh! Spotted the heart – which is great the way it is. Subtle and a nice surprise. Not hidden, not too big. Just right. 😀

  4. I did not notice the heart until I read your post. I like the heart just the way it it. It makes a fun surprise. Love your creativity. Thanks for sharing.

  5. love the surprise, One of my favorite memories at Gramma’s was to find special fabrics in log cabins or trip quilts–she was scrappy before it was cool!

  6. Looks awesome!; however,
    I do vote for a larger heart. It took me a few minutes to discover why you named it as you did …

  7. I didn’t realize it was there until your post mentioned it, and then I really had to search to find it. I like the size, but a lighter background would make it a little more noticeable, while still not having it jump out. Or it’s good as is. =)

  8. Staying true to the name, maybe the heart should be tucked beneath the horizontal and vertical rows where they cross! I love all the colors and simplicity of the design.

  9. I really like it as it is! If the heart was to much bigger it would be awkward to the size of the blocks. I didn’t see it when I first looked, but then I always scan through to see the colors and patterns, and detail, and there it was, a nice surprise! Then when I got to the end and heard the name I had to rescan it for the cross! And of course I have to ask the overall size, and the size of the blocks. Nice idea! You are on a roll!

  10. I like the look of this. Not sure how big it is, but I make most of my blankets for babies 40”-45” wide by 50”-60” long. That way they don’t outgrow the quilts to fast. Loisjean
