Do What You Love by unicornslave Do What You Love by unicornslave
This quilt was made as the opportunity quilt for my guild to celebrate the invention of the sewing machine. I loved working on it, sorry to see it go to a new home... once it was done, I decided I liked it and wanted to keep it, lol.

From a pattern by Jane Wilson.

Yay, a quilt finally winning a DD! I recognize that pattern :D I love the words you've hidden in the freehand! Are the corner hearts painted or did you find the perfect print to match? And I can't tell from the photo, but is the applique done with the blanket stitching or is that an accent you added later?

Wow, you could see those words in the quilting? cool, you have good eyes!... the corner hearts were cut out of a print I found with with old Singer machines on it. The applique is done with the blanket stitch, both to secure the applique AND as an accent both.
