Good Morning, Quilters!
Was I in hibernation? Where did January go???
We are on the heels of February already and we will continue our Flower of the Month free motion quilting.
(In case you slept through January, too…you can find The Carnation–the January flower HERE
Our February flower (The Violet–coming mid-February) has a heart-shaped leaf and I thought you might want to incorporate this motif into your Valentine’s Day quilting.
THE HEART LEAF
Begin by drawing three parallel lines. In the samples below, the lines are one inch apart.
Begin stitching on the middle line. Stitch a small clockwise curl.
Reverse direction and stitch a tapered leaf.
Echo stitch the curl back to the center line.
This motif stands alone–a very easy leaf–and it will look great when we combine it with the Wood Violet Flower later in February….
Hope your hibernation is over and YOU are ready to quilt!
Are YOU 1/12 of the way through YOUR New Year’s goals?
We’d LOVE to hear!
