"Sweet Sixteen" quilt top is complete


At last she's together.  I can't tell you how much I ABSOLUTELY love this quilt.  What a sweetie.  It din't take long to come up with the name "First Kiss".  My thought when designing this quilt was to make a heart quilt that could be  Valentine and still be used everyday.  This will fit into my studio perfectly and not look too Valentiney-ish. 


The heart shaped blooms combined with the small stars in the sashing remind me of that first kiss.  Love struck and seeing stars!


Most of the print fabrics are from various lines of Pam Kitty.  There's a few fabrics from other lines as well.


Quite often when designing quilts my borders are an after thought.  But not this one, I knew from the moment I designed the block that the border would also include hearts.  LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!


Now I just need to come up a quilting plan.  There's plenty of room for custom quilting in all that white space.  Oh maybe a feather or two!


This last picture is just because I like it.  
Thanks for stopping by my little spot in Podunk, ya'll come back anytime.  I love  comments and I try to respond to them all, but lately I've not been able respond to the many blessing sent for mamma and I.  Hopefully things will be back to "normal" soon.


I've linked up this post to the follow lovely blogs.  Hop on over and share your creations!

  22. I cannot for the life of me figure out how some quilt book publisher hasn't snapped you up yet. I guess it doesn't work that way, but really, you have so many very cute ideas, and more people should see them and enjoy them. This one is just adorable, but then I have yet to see anything you've made that wasn't adorable. You're one talented lady. Thank you for sharing your talents.
