Using cards for quilting inspiration!

Hearts, hearts, hearts,

This card is going to be fun to recreate! I found it in Pinterest ! 

I didn't want the full card but the background! The positive and negative space that you see in this card! 

In quilting what we love and are inspired by is the area that is rising and the area that is pressed down! That is called positive and negative space! 


I measured my fabric in half and drew lines to turn it into four squares! One side I drew a heart and quilted the inside on the right side I quilted the outside of the heart ! 

On each row I alternated the areas where I quilted!

Quilting on a sewing machine

I'm working on this wonderful skill that reveals to me I'm not there yet!  It's like an out of shaped person wanting to run a 5k!   If you have not put in the time don't expect to finish with ease!  

My mind says, "I can! " My hearts says, " it's not that hard!" 
Then I do the work the results aren't what hoped! 
That's when you start something new!  Be ready to struggle and even fail!  This is where true success starts!  When you keep trying even when you see that your not where you want to be yet!
