Friday Finds #4

I ♥ Applique!  Applique heart by Mr Minds Eye for Riley Blake Designs
From My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake Designs
  Thinking ahead for Valentine's Day.  Here is a cute applique---love that swirl cut out---for a block, mug rug, wall hanging, you can't make just one!    The tutorial and pattern can be found  here at Riley Blake Designs.

  I really like this little block, something about it ......must be the swirl :)   So what could I do with just one block?   That wouldn't take too long.
   I found a small sized piece of batting scrap, dug into my "parts bin" of 4 patch pieces and blocks, and pulled out a few strings.  A little play time and I put together a small candle mat/table topper.  Size is 11" by 13"  just because that was the size of the batting.   Tell me, what could you do with just one block?

  As always, if you are pinning the pattern, go to Riley Blake link above to pin.
I'm still sewing on the border to the English Garden quilt.....those darn taxes are interfering with my sewing time.   I will be glad to get it all filed and put away.
Happy stitching.


  1. That is so cute, when I saw it on pinterest it made me think of the heart challenge on Quiltshopgal's page.

  2. Muchas gracias por el tutorial

  3. Very cute, Debbie. It is a happy little quiltlet. : )
    Today is my monthly budget day so my quilting time is going to get squeezed out, I'm afraid.

  4. What a cute little piece that came from one little block.

  5. With just one block...happiness is Creative Bliss. I love the swirl too.

  6. So cute! We don't do Valentine's Day here but that would be a great addition if I did! LOL

  7. Your little table top mat is precious. I've made that block before & donated it in a comfort quilt that our quilting board was making for a cyber friend in need. I love that pattern. What can I do with one block you ask. Well, I took a 12" block, enlarged it with borders & made a doll quilt last year for your Get Your Mrs Claus On doll quilt project. It turned out cute (if I do say so myself). :)

  8. What a cute table mat! Thanks for the link.

  9. Wonderful pattern, thanks for the link. Your candle mat came out great.

  10. Oh, dear, the link is broken and I can't find the swirly heart pattern on their site.
