Last year in anticipation of the 30s category for the quilt show in spring, I made 40 of these hearts in a log cabin variation. And it had stayed in that stage until I uncovered them this week. ( other projects got in the way) As I have just finished 2 large quilts, it is time for a new focus.
Here is the pattern I sketched on graph paper for a 6 and a half inch block using 1 and 1/4 inch cut strips.
And here is one square completed shown on point.
And here is how I am starting with a center focus.
So while I had my camera out photoing my blocks, who should pass by my window but a lone turkey? Mind you, I live in a city. But behind my yard is a small section of woods. We saw him last night as well. Last year, it was a whole family who would amble across the yard. Maybe he is just returning for old home week.
