A month or so ago, my friend Diane gifted me with several pieces of old "cutter" quilts for my crafting. Over the past week I've been carefully cutting and sewing hearts from them. I am careful, because I don't want to waste an inch of these quilts; they are precious to me and I want to preserve as much of them as I can.
This pink square has beautiful hand quilting, and was hand-pieced.
I made two hearts from the section on the lower left. I didn't want to waste the scraps that came from cutting out the larger heart, so I made the small one too.
Diane sent this small piece that was left after she made two hearts for Amanda.
From that scrap I was able to make these two hearts:
This big block has a lot of color; I was drawn to the lower left corner, which is so worn-out that the batting is showing through the fabric
I just made one heart out of this piece, because there weren't any little scraps that needed saving.
This last one is the scrappiest and raggediest of all, but that's what I like about it!
