Good afternoon from lovely Desert South Texas – Yup reaching 100 out here in the sticks! I have completed my SAL Hearts for May project that Deb at Happy To Be Scrappy hosted last month! I am very pleased with the outcome! I named it Awakening Hearts because it turned on the light bulb in my mind why I was not progressing with UFO’s! I can already see the difference in not spending so much time on mail!
This was an easy quilt to make but adding up the time to applique the hearts (including preparation time) 15.5 hours to applique the hearts, cutting out 270 (2 1/8″ squares) for the 9 patches (some fussy cut), sewing them (10 hours) and sewing the quilt together 6 hours (including borders). Total amount of time to make this quilt top was 31.5 hours. I usually do not count the hours it takes to make a quilt so you can imagine the hours that it takes to make a very complex quilt!
I enjoyed the journey! Mountmellick is next – hoping to see you soon when there is a finish!
Have a wonderful week!
