The mystery of the disappearing quilt blocks!

 In 2014, I made these alphabet quilt blocks, from a Temecula sew along.  Then?  I carefully pressed and wrapped them up in the remaining white background fabric, and put them away for safe keeping. I could not find them anywhere!! Because they were all wrapped up in the background fabric, they stayed safely anonymous...
 Until now!  This is project 3/17, for the 17 in 2017 finish along.  I am auditioning a vine border, but am undecided on it.  Since it is close to Valentine's day, hearts are involved!!  I will have to think about this one, and decide on a plan of action for that applique border.  At least the blocks are all together, which is great progress from where they were!
This is just a little heart quilt for February.  Hearts, hearts, hearts!  I love them!!


Have a great day, everyone!!!

Oh so that's how that happens!!! I did my alphabet when Moda was doing their "Spell It" (?) quilt along and pretty sure it's done done (I know it got quilted). Now I gotta dig it out since I'm not sure where it is! HA Yours is looking good.

I'm glad the misplaced has been found. The vine looks great in the border.

Well, it is a good thing you found those cute alphabet blocks. I think they look sweet with the vine border. A nice, soft juxtaposition against the angular letters of the quilt body.
Your little heart quilts are so cute. I think you love hearts because you are a sweetheart! : )

Yes, I too vote for the vine. Coming out of the red corners, it looks like the vine is growing out of a flower pot. Maybe add a few more hearts along the vine as flower buds? Just thinking out loud. Happy you found this quilt as it is very beautiful and so much work went into in already. Enjoy! ;^)

So glad your mystery was solved. Those are sweet letters and the vine makes your eye flow around the quilt. You've been successful with the 17 in 2017 just by moving this quilt forward!
