Valentine's Day Wall-hanging.
I started this project at a class at the Jinny Beyer studio a few years ago when I still lived out in the Washington, DC area.
The goal of the class was to learn how to do foundation piecing, as the hearts are all foundation pieced.
I pulled it from my box of UFOs to work on in January, as I thought it would be the perfect project to complete before Valentine's Day this year.
The completion of this project also had a few other firsts for me (in addition to the foundation piecing).
First, I made my first mitered corners!!! One of them with a Jinny Beyer border print! And I didn't even have to call the Momcat for back up.
Second, I did free motion quilting in the sashing, and around the design in the border.
I use plain ole stitch in the ditch for the hearts and to anchor the piece.
This is the first of hopefully many UFOs that I hope to complete this year, and a step towards one of my New Year's Resolutions!
This is also my first finish for Gran's Ten n Ten challenge.
