Affairs of the Heart - WIP

I thought I would share one of my many wip's that I have.  I am using the book Applique Masterpiece Affairs of the Heart by Aie Rossman.
Once again I am at a crossroads because it is suppose to be a quilt when finished but I am rethinking what I want to do with the blocks.  I have only completed half of the blocks, it turned out to be a bigger project than I predicted.  It's really fun to see the colors come together as I finish each block. The fabrics I am using to appliqué on the black fabric are hand dyed charm packs from Starr Design Fabrics. They are nice because I can get a good variety of colors in each one. As with all my appliqué projects I like to use silk thread, it seems to just melt into the fabric as I am appliquéing each piece on.

Eventually I will figure out what I am going to do with the blocks. Maybe a wall hanging different from the book. Any thoughts?

  1. This is a beautiful project. I love the fabric/color combos and the black background.It is stunning. Why not make a table runner, and then use several for a lap quilt?
