Quilts of Valor Stars 2017 Project - February Block - Heart

I said I would be back to show you the February block for the Quilt of Valor Stars project.  This block is easier than it looks, and went together faster than I realized.  Actually the cutting out the block pieces took longer than sewing it together!

This is the pattern, if you are interested in making a block for our group.  You can find the information and all about the project here.

This is my first attempt at this block, using the scraps from January.  I need to make at least another one, as the group would really like blocks to come in pairs.  

I have been very busy working on a full complete quilt for this group, so I haven't gotten to getting this other block done.  I will be posting more about the full quilt in a few days.

I have been out of town every weekend since the new year, doing trade shows with my husband.  When possible, I visit a local quilt shop, and I have been able to pick up some appropriate fabric for future blocks and quilts for the QOV Stars project.

I am hoping to get to making some blocks this week and next week, as the weather will keep me inside.  It is and supposed to be raining here for the next two weeks.  Sigh.  I guess that's better than snow, right?

I also have been up to my eyeballs in that four five letter word - TAXES.  Our tax return has 17 schedules and forms.  SEVENTEEN.  I can remember it being only two.  But, that is behind us now and I can get back to quilting, gardening, and anything else that might be fun.

lovely block and a fab collection of fabrics! I suggest you rearrange those letters ... here in TEXAS it's hot, sunny, blue skies and (in my case) very lazy!!!!!!
