Here is the stencil I used in the tree.
I auditioned my pattern on Press and Seal. The pattern is free motion. I did add 8 dots. 4 at the top of the hearts and 4 at the bottoms of the hearts as quides to help me get a more symetrical heart. I also added a few lines on the roof to help get that straight.
This has been fun to quilt. See the whole quilt top here: http://colleensquiltingjourney.blogspot.com/2011/06/love-at-home-quilt.html

I’ve been working on Mom’s quilt. FINALLY got all the center wreaths done. Now I’ll be adding little flowers in between them. You get a better picture from the back. This quilt is going slow because of a million different reasons like my wrist, my machine, my time, my job, trying out new techniques on something else that I’ll want to use on this quilt … . You name it, I’ll use it as a reason. Also, I just don’t want to rush this. I want to take my time and do a lovely job. I want my Mom to have something to keep forever.
