Here's my entry! I hadn't intended on entering this challenge but it hit me today that my table and seasonal flowers needed something!

I googled heart quilt blocks and settled with this one... haven't really dabbled in quilting so this is really my first post of something quilted!

All of the patterned fabric is fat quarters from Michaels, and the teardrop shaped one is from Fabricland, the rest of it is thrift store finds or given to me by friends! I kinda cheated for the backing and used pre-quilted fabric Roll Eyes Grin

All the flowers are from Michaels and arranged by me and picked out by my son! The vase was even decorated by me for my sisters wedding this past summer!

Here's my pictures of my entry!

Full shot!


Some closeup shots! I quilted around each heart and then did 2 seperate outlines!


The backing! You can kind of see the outline of the hearts!


My flower arrangement!

And the arrangement with the table runner!

So what do ya think! I put the whole thing together today! It went a lot smoother than I was thinking... even if the bias tape isn't perfect I love it, and hope you do too!
