Redwork Hearts

The stitchery bug has bitten again. I am really enjoying working on Alex Anderson's red work hearts. There are 12 hearts in all.

I have finished 4 hearts to date by just putting in a few stitches here and there.

The designs are originally for a 6.5" block. I thought that size seemed a little small so I enlarged the designs to fit an 8.5" block.
I have plans to put these together into a wall hanging in time for Valentine's Day 2011.
In the meantime, it is fun to work on a Valentine themed project in the month of February.
...only 8 more hearts to go!

Norma, I love how these are turning out! Great job on the stitching. I have them downloaded but have other things to work on right now or I would be joining you.

When I see how you combine them, I will be waiting one too, LOL.

Love these blocks Norma, I'm so thrilled to see them as I've been thinking about printing the patterns out for myself. You've stitched them up so beautifully!

A great head-start on Valentine's 2011, I'd say! They are lovely. Cheers! Evelyn
