Hearts Challenge


One of my sisters-in-law
is celebrating a milestone birthday
so I made this 12"x12" mini for her.


 It's hard to see what's
going on in this photo.
(The real thing is better!)
I wanted to put some "lace" and "beads"
around the the center heart
and used perle cotton #8


to chain stitch an irregular
ruffle-like design and then added french knots.
Before these touches, I machine quilted
channels using red thread.
