This block will join 11 other's made by the 'SewJourner's of Ohio' for one of their own's 60th birthday quilt gift.  All block designs were left to the individual's discretion, but made from the same fabric group.  I knew immediately that the chosen fabrics lent themselves to a stunning bargello'grading.  By adhering the sewn/cut strips to grid-stabilizer, then using the fold and sew method, and then trimming to a heart shape and tacking down to the background block fabric, a raised 3-D heart was achieved.  I then made my own outline braid from coordinating 1/8" ribbons and blind'sewed it around the heart.  I can't wait to see all the blocks together made into Linda's quilt!  `Sue

I love what you have done. The 3-d effect of the fold and sew method, and the corded braid are wonderful. The total effect is grand. Lucky Linda.

Is this really only 10.5" wide?  How small are your squares?  This is beatuiful work and a cleaver idea.  Wonderfully executed... kudos to you.
