Heart Block and Quiltville Mystery

Well, here's my guild's block of the month for January. I try to anticipate the holidays, so, yes, we're doing hearts already. Here's the guild's web page I made with the heart block instructions - if you see any errors, please let me know.


Finally, I've gotten all 100 hourglass blocks done for the Quiltville mystery. Each block has 4 different fabrics in it, though you can't tell it here, the flash makes it difficult to see the white patterns on the white.

Of course, while I had these red fabrics out for the heart, I couldn't resist cutting a few strips from them to add to my mystery hourglasses. I used Omnigrid's triangle #98 for the first time (although I've had the ruler forever, this was the first time I've used it for what it was designed to be used for.)



I can't wait for Thursday to see how we're going to arrange these bits into blocks. I've played with it on EQ, but my designs never work out into groups that would call for the right numbers of blocks... :D

I'm not doing the mystery quilt but am waiting with bated breath to see what they'll all look like. I like your color choices.

Your blocks look great! You have some awesome fabrics there!

I especially liked your EQ design in the upper left corner (back last month.) I may make that one someday ... meanwhile looking forward to Bonnie's solution!

The heart is wonderful. I like the checkerboarding you did. I look forward to seeing how the blocks go together, too!

I'm not doing Bonnie's mystery either - I'd never get anything done! However, I love your red and white heart. I recently put out a plea for more hearts for Quilts 4 Leukaemia. Do you want to make some more for me?
