Put a Little Love in Your Quilt!!!!

I am really excited about this blog hop, because it has been ages since I joined one.  I hope you all join us in the fun projects being brought to you this week.  I want to thank Carol from http://www.justletmequilt.com/ for hosting this one...I hope she does it again and again.

I enjoy being on the first day..that way I am less apt to forget...lol. My project this time around is a little one, a cushion cover. I can't remember exactly where I saw this, but on line somewhere...someone had a piece similar and I thought it was soooo cute. Thank you to the person who posted it.
Here is my garden of hearts...
Isn't it just the cutest thing???  I made the hearts with my Go Baby and fused them on the fabric...appliquéd with a blanket stitch...added colourful ric rac for some fun! I machine quilted the background on Lily, my Coronet.

Now, I know I said I had one little project...but, I saw this on the Accuquilt site(similar) and couldn't resist.
This is done with the Go Baby for the heart leaves and hearts...and my husband drew the owls.  Gotta love him!! I stippled the background fairly densely to make the pieces pop.  The border has a heart and loop vine. Here is another pic...maybe you can see the border better.
This was so much fun to make, and I just love it!!!!!  Now......hope you are still here, because I have a nice giveaway for you.  I will draw randomly at the end of the blog hop for a $30. Gift certificate being sponsored by Mad About Patchwork.  A huge thank you to them for always being willing to play along with us.

Below, you will find the schedule for today, and the rest of the week.  Please visit everyone and let them feel the love.  Thank you for being here...enjoy the hop!
And please...if you don't have a blog, leave your email address in your comment so I can reach you.
