Early in the year, Corowa Quilters asked me to do a Christmas workshop. Back then November was ages away and now it's here, tomorrow in fact. I'm teaching a couple of favourite designs, Christmas Trimmings and Stitched Treasures.
It's been awhile since I made one of the hearts from Stitched Treasures. Originally I used a fine stripe and have been on the lookout for a substitute ever since. It didn't occur to me when this print from the French General first arrived that it would work, because I was only thinking stripe. One of those light bulb moments happened and how lovely does it look with just a touch of green. The other nice surprise was how quick it was to make. Admittedly I prepared it one night and then stitched it the next, but it felt like it was finished in no time at all.
Since I always leave making Christmas gifts to the last minute, this could be just the thing......

This red tone on tone would look nice used on the back of the red hearts. I like it with both the red & pale red French General fabric.
Perfect for Christmas. You could stitch on this one too.
