Yep you guessed it this will be made out of turquoise/blues. You can see that Tanya and I have some different tastes in colors. When I first told my wife about this I told her that she could hang it on the wall in her room. She was thinking I was making a little wall hanging. Unlike Connie, where I got this idea from my twister is huge hers is like 2 inch squares where mine are more like 6 inch squares. So any way this is going to be a bit bigger then she expected. The baby twister I made for example is 2 squares less in each direction so it will be decent size. After I took my design downstairs and started cutting it out I realize one big oops, my design was backwards from what the twist I was doing (my blocks are spinning the other direction). I sent James my oldest son up and this is his interpretation of what my heart should look like.
You can see that Jame's taste is closer to mine (but a little darker), but at least they are spinning the right direction so that I can use it as my pattern. You can see that I have almost the top 4 rows made. I don't think I have enough white so I will be shopping some time this week.
Speaking of love, Tanya played with her Embroidery machine today trying to make a label for a quilt she finished. Above is the first try. You can see that she was still working out spacing issues on this first try as the year ended up in our heart. The second try looks wonderful and is sewed onto our quilt (more on that in the next post).
Just in case you guys were feeling bad that I did not get to make a pink heart Tanya did give me this pile of pink material with a beige background material to make a quilt that we will add to the Etsy Store.
