The Desperate Housewife's Quilt - Block 30 Heartfelt



Welcome to week 30 of the 'The Desperate Housewife's Quilt'. Todays block is about Foundation piecing a heart for Valentines Day. Remember, this is not a quilt-a-long. Just follow the blog every week and pick and choose which blocks you would like to make. I will be injecting some uniqueness into traditional blocks, applique, three dimensional, crazy and thread-art blocks. If you make a block please post it on the Flickr group for everyone to enjoy. Also, I have this nifty button under each post that allows you to save the post as a PDF.


*******************************************************************************************************
Be sure to visit this week's Guest Blogger and their wonderful block.
(N.B Due to time and date differences, guest bloggers posts do not always coincide with my post)

This weeks guest blogger is Danielle from MesPetitsElefants blog with her fabulous block - Round the Twist . Danielle will be showing us a nifty way to make flying geese blocks.
