Mosaic-Like Hearts for Christchurch

Earlier this month I told you about Evie Harris’ Hearts for Christchurch initiative and showed you the mosaic-like fabric I had created.

This is where I left off, fabric bits fused to background fabric ready for quilting:

mosaic fabric - all done

Insert missing picture of finished fabric all quilted …. oops, seems I either lost or forgot to take the photo.

From the 12″ x 17″ piece, I managed to cut out 8 hearts, and a few bookmarks:

I stitched diagonal lines in both directions, about 1/4″ to 3/16″.

I kept it simple and just wrote Canada on the back:

Off to New Zealand they go tomorrow. Check Evie’s blog to see all the fabulous hearts she’s received: Hearts for Christchurch.

    I bet they are going to be even better in the flesh and I get to see them soon. They are great looking hearts. Thank you for your support.
