I Heart Stitchin Friends . . . . .

Teresa over at Stitchin' Friends is the leader, mentor, teacher of a group called . . . . Stitchin' Friends.  Two Saturdays ago, Teresa taught our group to take 169 tiny squares and put them together to make one small block (6-1/2" square).

At our May meeting, she was going to show us how to put it together to make a cute wall hanging. 

 (Taken from Teresa's blog without her permission)

I was so obsessed with finishing the heart block when I got home, that I just kept going.  Not Teresa's pattern and I hope she forgives me for going out of the box.  I was just having so much fun.  It still needs to be quilted ....... I know, you aren't surprised.

It's not that I didn't like Teresa's.......I loved it.  But I wanted to put some applique on mine.  The words are ironed on fabric, the border applique is wool applique.   Hope you like it, Teresa!

Blessings, Cathi

Those are some tiny squares. I like both versions and it is alright to make it your own. I do it all the time.
