- I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

Maple Sugar Hearts Wallhanging
I started this over a year ago - had the machine and fused applique done, machine quilting on the border done, most of the binding done. I just finished the hand quilting around the hearts so I can enter it in the local quilt show at the town festival. It is 100% complete, binding, hanger on back, everything.
It is based on a pattern in the mini-quilt book Bits and Pieces, but I made the colors seem like cherries and chocolate, using Thimbleberries and other Civil War era prints.
