Heart u and quilt progress

Hey ya....

I haven't played along with EBTKS in a while so I thought I'd do their Most recent challenge

Its all about texture...I used a couple embossing folders, corduroy, chipboard and a pin...I think that counts...


Now...I worked a bit on my quilt this week

Here are all the pieces layed out- the circles have been sewn to the backing fabric


And these are the pieces cut up in quarters...

I plan on getting them sewn in 4 patches...we'll see what happens...
