Hearts and borders

That's what I am handquilting on my girlie quilt. I have traced a heart shaped cookie cutter with a soft, graphite marker (which smears on my hands, sigh) and I am outlining each block. It is starting to look kind of cute on the back now that a few blocks are done. The front is smudged with graphite, so it's not as nice looking, although it is picking up lots of texture and dimension with my stitches.

So, I am happy with it. It is imperfect and I am okay with that. It's all part of the learning curve and I am kind of proud that I have managed to slow down with it. Thanks, Mom!
