A Quick Quilt Project

Over the weekend I finished a mini wall hanging quilt block. I finished my hand embroidery design and wanted to do a quick project and send it to a family member.
The heart design was a free download from Bird Brain Design. A nice blog and they have some great embroidery products too.
I love red fabric.

Simple stippling around the heart, used a few decorative stitches on my sewing machine and some yo-yo's. I have a few other small sewing projects that I hope to complete in the next couple of weeks and then I want to get back into more hand embroidery.

I also attempted to make some hand millinery flowers using a couple of my paper punches.
They are hard to find in the stores and online I really do not need to buy a 100 of one color. So I gave it a try and I do like the way they came out.
The two small punches.
This is what I used for the flower centers. I purchased these at Michael's in the bridal section for $1.99. I did add some glue to the center to hold the floral spray in place.
Thanks for stopping bye and have a wonderful day.
