"Long View" top finished

Number 12 in my series trying to use up some beautiful scrubs fabrics top is finished.

This beautiful fabric deserved a quilt all by itself. I have plenty to make some more, mixed with other fabrics, but I thought the first should be this alone.

These are the sizes and shapes of pieces I started with. 

I wrote up the pattern for you here.  It is pretty specific to my own long and skinny pieces, but maybe someone will like to use it!

When I made the hearts, I used my die cutting machine. It looks like this as I made them:

 First, make a piece of fabric form 1 1/2" strips - in a variegated color scheme.

 Place the heart die on the tray, put the fabric top of the die and the plexiglass piece over the top.

 Perfect hearts!

 Make a variety of color schemes by turning the fabric on the die to change the order of the colors

Of course, you don't need a die to make hearts!!!!  You can do it the simple way - draw a heart, cut it out and use it as a pattern and simply cut out hearts out of your fabric!  I've done that a lot of times!  

Anyway, this fabric is gorgeous - look for more using this flamingo fabric as I have quite a bit more of it! The colors are so strong, however, that a whole quilt from it will be a bit overwhelming - so I'm still considering what to do for the next one.

Have a wonderful day wherever this finds you reading!
