I have wanted to make hearts like these for a long, long, long time.

They have been a hugh undertaking for me. My hope is that you agree they are worth it.

These designs are filled with Texture, Dimension, and of course COLOR. We all love colors.

Be sure to read the options below carefully before ordering

 

 

I made this project for my husband and I. It hangs next to our bed.
I kept forgetting to take photos of it. Better late than never!

Brenda Boucher’s Project

Brenda writes: “I made it years ago but didn't know how to send a photo until now. I sure enjoyed making it and your directions were very easy to follow. Everyone who see it loves it! You did such a beautiful job on it.

Thank you so much for all you do!

Brenda Boucher

She did a beautiful job on it. The green really sets off the blocks.

That’s a WOW border too. It really pulls it all together.

I have finished the wallhanging from your designs- "Love Is..." It was a lot of fun to complete this wallhanging and I will be handing it off to our Bazaar Chair-Person in early September to be used for our charity bazaar.

Connie Neer’s Project

Connie writes: “A couple years ago I ordered several copies of the Love Is Quilt for several girls in a sewing group I belong to. I am enclosing a picture of mine finished plus a few other things I won ribbons on. I placed it in our local county fair this past week and am so proud to say I won first place and Best of Show on my entry.

Thank you for designing such a lovely project.”

Connie writes again to let me know : “Hi Laura: I just wanted to let you know I entered my Love Is wall hanging in another local fair and took first place in this one. So two firsts and one Best of Show. Thanks again for a lovely project and wonderful embroidery.”

Look at all the ribbons she won!

Congratulations Connie!

 

Charla’s ‘Love Is’ Quilt

Charla writes, “I finished the designs... they are absolutely BEAUTIFUL... the instructions are clear..... the digitizing was precise... the color sheets were perfect... this was my first project on my own and it took some tweeking and quick learning of my HV DSE for me, but by the 12th design, i had my machine and process figured out and it turned out perfect....both front AND back... no nests on back... now i'm ready to stitch out another couple of sets... i have so many people i want to make one for!! “

“here's my niece's "LOVE IS" wallhanging.. not bound yet but i just took it off the quilt frame (i'm a longarmer) and i LOVE it... i should have made the sashing half the size it is, but i love it anyway!! thanks again!! charla”
