A Mashed Up Thumb, Valentine Pixelated Heart and Piecing

I made two of these 30″ square pixelated heart hangings.  One was for Joanne, my friend in Sacramento, and the other for me. They were inspired by this.

Last night, while quilting another batch of pillow covers, my thumb got nailed by the Gammill needle several times.  This is today’s scene.

Joyce is heading up a monthly mystery during our Westside Quilters Guild Sewing Saturdays.  Here are my pieces so far.

Kevin used his Christmas money from his sister for a super powerful flashlight.  This morning, he played around with it and the camera and got this photo.  Pretty cool!

    You got an entire quilt top sewn last weekend? You are a whiz! Just be careful and protect that thumb of yours. It comes in very handy when sewing and quilting . . .
