Open your heart, it's Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day Week!
Time to open up your heart!

I am still running back and forth from point A to point B during the week and sewing like crazy on the weekends. I am hoping as always to make more progress this upcoming weekend but there are only so many hours in the day. I was able to finish the squares for my "A Mother's Hope" quilt. Back in September when I committed to making this quilt March seemed so far away. But it is breathing down my neck!
Here is where we are on this project. It is a version of a Bento Box quilt, but on point.

Getting the picture was no easy feat. I was standing precariously on a chair to get the shot. I took a lot of pictures and most were blurry disasters. I NEED to get my design wall back up before I break my neck. I noticed after I took this one that the two squares on the bottom right were the same fabric. So i ended up shuffling some squares. I am planning on assembling the quilt this weekend probably after I move the squares around one more time. I am still debating if i should add a very light grey/cream/white border. Since I am in Minnesota this week I am heading to S R Harris Fabric after work to find backing fabric. I have resisted going there all winter and I am giving in now!

Carin over at Margaret's Hope Chest is starting a few new charity projects. Hope over and see what she is cooking up. Two projects one if you want to do a whole top, one if you want to do a few squares. 

Linking it up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
