Recently the discussion about those blocks came up at one of our meetings and I confessed that I hadn't put them together yet. When I got home, I got them out, put them up on the wall and made myself finish it before it could go back in the drawer! Interesting how my tastes have totally changed since then!! I just did a small lap quilt with a simple sashing and cornerstones of the blue fabric. I had enough fabric to use that for the back as well. My friend, Chris, just got a long arm this summer and has been diligently practising. She quilted it for me with a heart motif which is perfect.
I can't believe it's actually finished! Sorry for the colours on the photos...lots of sun today which is a good thing when it's -19C outside! The very bottom photo shows the colours accurately.

|We were one block short to make a 3 by 4 block layout so someone drew up a hearts and hand block and I embroidered it|
