I am thinking maybe I should have done yesterday's post today???  Go out with a I am just going to go out with a PUFF.

Before I begin I want to show you this little quilt.

I started this quilt in Amerika Samoa seven years ago.

About two weeks ago we put my mother back in assisted living (not nursing home).

My mother has never liked the mornings.  As children we were to never ever wake her up.  If she was napping we were to be very quiet.

In assisted living they have breakfast at 7:30 and my mother doesn't start stirring til around nine.  They all know not to bother her.  The kitchen even has her breakfast saved.

So I finished this today to put on her door.  Most of the residence have wreaths.  Needless to say, she loved it.

Now back to the Hearts at hand.


All you need is love!

This is a fun little project.  

25 1/2" x 13 1/2"

This project takes no time at all.

In this picture you can see the candle mat that was made from the scraps.  

Here is one I did and just put home instead of love, don't they mean the same thing?


33" x 14 1/2"

Trust me when I tell you that this one goes rather fast.

                                                       SCRAPPY TIME VALENTINE

These vary in sizes from 18" to 13 "

Now I have to tell you that these are a lot of fun and a great way to use up those small scraps.

The center is the blackboard fabric but you can put any center you want in the middle.

Just fun little wall hangings.


Theree patterns to give away, just leave a comment telling me which one you would like.

Barb, as always another stunning project and clear tutorial. I would take your oops in a heart beat and hang it on my wall for all the world to see. Or at least my YouTube followers lol. Could it be fixed with a piece of fusible underneath the cut or maybe an applique on top? Sometimes I just don't want to deal with an oops anymore and prefer to just pass it along to someone else.

I love your circle tips. I always have that little V and never could figure out why. Now I know how to avoid it. Thanks!

The actual topper will go to

Wow! These are all great patterns. It’s so hard to choose between All you Need is Love and Scrappy Time Valentine ! I guess I’d have to choose the Scrappy Time Valentine! I just saw this through a link from another blog and checked out all 5 days. They are all great!

I love your Mom's new door wall hanging. At least it gives everyone fair warning when they get to your Mom's door. I'm actually better in the mornings. My brain seems to slow down around 4 pm.

I love all the LOVE patterns but I think the first one with the letters in the hearts is my favorite. I think it would be sweet for a new baby with their name in the hearts. The most brilliant award goes to the last one with the chalkboard heart. I love the way you used scraps to outline the heart. You could use any color and it would still be fun.

I don't think you fizzled out at all. The tutorial was to keep us going until the final day and look at all the fun table art we got to see today. Thanks!

P.S. Now I can't stop singing All You Need Is Love lol.

And I thought I was the only one that didn't do mornings! Hubby loves getting up early, then eating right away - me, not so much. I don't mind lazing around till 10 or 11, and I hardly ever eat anything before 3, but then again, I often don't go to sleep until 3, 4 or 5 in the morning! Darn all those years of late nights and graveyard shifts!!

I think all your patterns today are adorable, but I'm partial to All You Need Is Love - those hearts are just so sweet! Besides, it looks like it would fit just right in the front window along the dashboard of our new motorhome.

Congrats to yesterday's winners!

I couldn't stop laughing when I saw your Morning Bunny. More so, when I read your Mom's story and especially it's placement in her new home. All support workers sure do have their warnings now!!! It is so good to know that the home is obliging and not "forcing" your Mom to comply with their schedules.

My favourite today would be All You Need is Love! Not that I don't like the others, but you said to pick one! Once again, you have shown us how to use the cutout pieces for a secondary design, rather than wasting. Of course, we have to cut carefully!

I know I am going to keep having many smiles for sometime, just thinking about Heart Attack Week! :) Thank you for sharing and showing in oh so many ways, and making it an educational, entertaining and inspiring week!

What a great giveaway! I would love to win that Love pattern.

The door hanging for your mom is adorable. I am so glad they respect her hours.

I really like the hearts and flowers runner. I can imagine it in bright floral fabrics.

You definitely did not fizzle at all. This was a great day full of wonderful patterns. said...

Wow more gorgeous projects. LOL She doesn't do mornings. Was she a night owl?

This has been a great week - and all of your patterns are wonderful. I don't want to have to choose between them - so if I win - surprise me!

I used to have a nightshirt that said something like - "I'd like mornings better if they started later." Hopefully, the staff will be as accommodating to me as they are to your mother when it's my turn to go to assisted living - ;))

Oh that is a lovely door sign. I know several family members who could use one of those. I need one that says "I don't do evenings" - somehow that doesn't have quite the same ring to it! Your heart runners and mats are gorgeous.
