Project Quilting 11.3 - Put a Heart On It

Put a Heart on It was the third theme for Project Quilting (hosted by Kim @ Persimon Dreams).

I knew what to make right away...having recently found a photo online of a heart inside a star.  I decided to make a pillow for a friend who is having surgery in the coming weeks.

Everything was in my scrap pile, including this fun chevron for the back.

I even found a heart print for the border.  I quilted some words in the star points:  love and faith.

And joy and peace.  I'm not one to practice 😉 but I did practice peace...once...and then jumped right in.

I ran out of a boxy stipple in the background.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to participate in the next challenge, as I'll be en route to QuiltCon when the next theme is announced.
