So this is the new heart. It is a bit of a departure and that is a good thing. The colors are similar to the clunky heart that I wrote about yesterday, but actually a little more subdued. I seem to like these more complex colors much better than crayon brights. The dark border is not black, as it may look, but a very dark, dark blue.
I haven't done handwork on a quilt in a long time, but I keep seeing that seed stitch being used. Deborah uses it so well! But I wanted to make it my own, so I experimented with a double seed stitch. I have spent a couple of evenings stitching on this and I like it. This piece feels so much better than clunky heart. I feel like it has some life and movement and it was a lot more fun to work on.
