Design Wall Monday-Hearts and Flowers

On my design wall this Monday is my center and part of border number 2 of the Hearts and Flowers Quilt.  The pattern is by Kim McLean and can be found in Kaffe Fassett's Quilt Romance book.  I just finished all of the hand applique' on the center section and have just started the second border.  The borders aren't sewn on yet but just placed on my design wall to get an idea of what the finished quilt might look like. 
 Here is a close up of the center section.  The center of the large heart is a Phillip Jacobs fabric.  There are several of his fabrics in this quilt as well as Kaffe Fassett's.  I just love working with these fabrics.
These leaves and hearts are actually border number 4.  Since this border is made up of individual blocks, I started there.  This quilt has been a UFO since sometime last fall. 
If you visit the Glorious Applique' blog, you will see how others are doing on their various Kim McLean patterns.  We are all fans and think her work is amazing. 

Thanks to Judy L. at Patchwork Times for hosting Design Wall Monday.

Hope all of you are finding some time to stitch today.  Thanks for visiting!

Dear LuAnn,
what shall I say: great work. Gorgeous.
You have done a great job with you Dresdner Plate. You work so much quicker than I can write comments. All your sewings are so precise.
Have a nice and kreative day

Wow, the borders are great also, it is really coming along well. I pinned some of my Roseville Album blocks on the design wall just to cheer up the room a bit. These colors are so fun!
Happy Stitching,
Cheri
