New Year - New Project??? Yes!

So as you know, I have really been trying to focus on what I already have started and actually finishing some UFOs....  And I have been somewhat successful.  Then I stumbled upon a blog from the Netherlands with a very interesting..... and sweet idea.  The project is called "Sweet Hearts 2013" - and the idea is to make one small heart block a day for a year.  I loved this idea... small pieces.. and a completed quilt within a year - What could be better??
So here is my first heart...... so sweet.  Batik heart on a 4 inch white background. 1 down - 364 to go.
And here are the first five already done.  (Little Kitty likes them too!)
Now, you know it is more fun when you have company so I got my girlfriend Dawn to join me in this year-long project (she LOVES hearts - so it didn't take too much arm twisting LOL).  And while we were at it, I got Karin to join us too - so much FUN!!

Of course..... they are like potato chips.  These are put together and ready to be stitched.  Which do you like better - the pink triangles or the black & white?  I can't decide.
Lots of hearts to make - I need to catch up!  We are a month behind!  
If you would like to do the same, I have added the link to the Sweet Hearts 2013 to my blog homepage.  The finished size is 72" X 72" and the pattern and cutting measurements are on the Sweet Hearts blog.
I am sure you will be seeing lots of these !

Happy Stitching
