Year of Love Wreath

I figured out a "different" way to display my Year of Love scrappy hearts (shown in the last post). I used Ellen's block from Carol Doak's 40 Bright and Bold Paper Pieced Blocks book in 3" and 5" sizes. I added a black and white paisley border and stuck to solids and plain fabric blocks so that I could put my individual hearts in the center and show them off. I'll use velcro to hold them in the center of the wreath, but first I need to finish all the hearts. I'm gonna use my fancy stitches (that I never use) and try some embellishments to finish each one. But, right now I'm pretty happy that I found a way to display them - my genius idea. I didn't want to just stick them all together in a wall hanging. This way they each have their time and can stay up for a whole month. I might use some of my novelty stash to create some more. Tons of fun.
