Cut Ups Bee

Friday afternoon was the first meeting of a new quilting group called the Cut Ups. The group will be meeting once a month to make simple quilts using pre-cut fabrics.

The first project used two sets of six squares of different colors to make heart blocks. I used some pre-cut squares that I had lying around to make three heart blocks that I assembled into a table runner/wall hanging. Just to make this a more useful project I used an insulating batting called Insul-Bright so that the whole thng can be used as a heat resistant pad.

Here's how mine turned out:

I know I didn't used traditional fabrics but I like the fabrics I did have... especially as they were what I had on hand. Maybe next time I'll use traditional reds and whites and give it to Sweet Sadies for their Valentine's decorations.
Until then have a sweet day!

Great idea using the insulbrite! Would you mind sharing the pattern for the heart blocks? Thinking I may want to do something with those!
