I'm back to sewing.

After a too short of a break, I'm back to sewing.  I needed to make up a few Valentine's day items.  I made a primitive heart wreath cupboard hanger.  The heart is made from an old cutter quilt.  I only had enough left to make three hearts.  Boo-hoo...
Then, I found the directions for these hearts with a hole in the center.  When I purchased this pattern years ago, I couldn't for the life of me figure it out!  No problem now, they are a bit time consuming, but worth the etra effort.

This is set of hearts are my own design.  I make the backing using two pieces of fabric, for a neater look.
I call these, Prairie hearts.   I fell in love with the old feel of the prints. They are a bit larger measuring 7" long.

I should have some Primitive bears finished in a few days.  I'll post them when they're done.
