Show & Tell Tuesday - Will You be Mine? and Shirt Tales

Show & Tell Tuesday

I have two quilts to share today.

Will You be mine?

These pretty paper-pieced hearts came together beautifully when I alternated them with some heart squares.  

I used the paper piecing pattern from the book Show Me How to Paper Piece by Carol Doak

That Patchwork Place-Show Me How To Paper Piece, , hi-res

 and it is available  HERE.

This was my second attempt at paper piecing.  It was while making this quilt that I realized how much I enjoy paper piecing.   

I finished my quilt in 2010 with alternating squares, sashing and cornerstones.

It measures 61" X 61".

Shirt Tales

Homestead Hearth of Mexico, Missouri, offered Shirt Tales as a
 Block of the Month in February 2009.

It was assembled from 3", 6" and 9" blocks into 12" X 18" panels.

Then these panels were sewn together and a border was added.

It was distributed by Quakertown Quits of Friendship, TX.  

I finished Shirt Tales in 2010 and it measures 66" X 84".

I hope you enjoyed these two quilts.

Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching!!!
