Hearts from Boonah retreat

Thanks to the Boonah retreat group for your beautiful hearts last year when I missed my own birthday party. I've taken the liberty of including myself (the missing heart). Each heart was matched to a coordinating fabric - fifteen hearts, fifteen fabrics. Once used, each fabric was then gifted to a neighbouring heart (something we all tend to do on retreat). Each block was finished with a round of black fabric, in varying widths, then cut down to 11" squares. I am pleased with how the blocks seem to float over the background. Also thinking a lot more about visual balance - this was a great opportunity to practise some more of Ann Johnston's wisdoms from The Quilter's Book of Design (thank you Sue D)
