Hugs and Kisses/Giveaway

Whooooooooo Hoooooooooooo!!! It is my day for the Hugs and Kisses blog hop. I can't tell you how much fun I have had getting ready for this hop. I enjoy all of them, but this one was fantastic!! I got to use my Go!Baby and things went really well. So right to it!!

I made a table topper with my heart die; It measures about 27" square....and I finished it with some FMQ of a vine of heart shaped leaves.

A close up of the quilting....
I cut the hearts out with the Go!Baby....fused them on then appliqued with a hot pink thread/Essentail Threads from Connecting Threads.  It works really well. It is quilted with DIY thread in the top and bobbin thread in the bobbin.

Now I couldn't stop at one piece this time!!!! So; next up is....this little pillow:

This is Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Sam on Valentine Day!!!!!  It is quilted with a small paisley.....
and I made an envelope back for it....with these cute little buttons.

And last, but not least....a little wall hanging. Since this hop is called 'Hugs and Kisses'....well the wall hanging is the same.....with a few hot little lips....lol

This one was not cut out with the Go!Baby...shoot!! I don't have that die!!!!  So tedious cutting by hand of the letters and lips...lol.  It is quilted with little loops on the white and down the borders.


                                                         



Not sure you can see much of the quilting here.

Well; that is it for me folks!!!  I hope you enjoyed my part in this hop. It was a real blast for me.

Now I did mention a giveaway, right?.....of course I did!! I have 5 fat eighths in reds and pinks for you.
