Current Project Progress Reveal

So, no guesses as to what I have been working on. Commenting has really slowed down around here! I miss hearing from everyone. I had hundreds of hits on my silhouette project but I think only 3 or 4 people actually left a comment. Please let me know your are still out there. 'Nuff said.

I wanted to show you what it is I have been working on. I am soooo excited about how it is coming along. It makes me smile seeing it slowly come together. Here are a couple "in progress" shots.

It is going to be sooo cute! It is a comforter for Kiera's bed. Every block is appliqued. I free handed the block designs from a picture I got off the internet of a 44"x?" quilt. I did some math and figured out how to make the dimensions work for a twin comforter, and went for it. There are hearts, stars, flowers, x's and spirals for the o's, and then a block that says hugs, and one that says kisses. The border is a flowery fabric that has all 6 colors to tie it together and then I am doing the binding in dark purple. I love it! It is a TON of work, but with what I've seen so far, I believe it all will be worth it.

So cute!!!!! One suggestion--you might put the words at opposite ends of eachother to balance the quilt design and make it so there is no definite top or bottom. Did you do the applique with sewing, or just ironed on?
