Valentines

 
Here's the half-log cabin hearts project that I've had simmering since before the holidays.  I was wanting to try a string project that was a little more orderly than some of the other string quilts I've done, and this worked out just like I'd hoped.
 
The starting square for each block was cut at  4 1/2", and the strips were cut at 1 1/2".  I finished each block with a round of background strips so the hearts would float rather than touch.  
 
I'll stitch down the binding this week so I can take it to guild for show-and-tell next Monday, and then I will use it for February home décor, probably in the sunroom.
 
This quilt was my NewFo2014 project for January.
