Heart in Stripes – Third blue and white heart

Heart in Stripes - francenadeau.comHeart in Stripes - francenadeau.comHeart in Stripes - francenadeau.com

Heart in Stripes in shades of blue and white. This third heart has the same background as the first and the second (new and recycled fabric I used for the the mug rugs with a white foundation). The various textures of the fabrics are on full display here. 

I have added a layer of cotton batting inside the heart to be able to use it as a mug rug. It was hand quilted with a variegated King Tut cotton thread. I also played with a piece of ribbon to make a flower (it is supposed to be a rose, just to say).

Heart in Stripes – Second blue and white heart

Heart in Stripes - francenadeau.com

Heart in Stripes in shades of blue and white. Although this second heart has the same background as the first (new and recycled fabric I used for the the mug rugs with a white foundation), it looks darker. This is amazing what a change of color in the details can do to the overall look.

To adorn this heart, I sew by hand a ribbon I bought and stitched a row of “x”. Just as if I was making cross stitching. I was fortunate to have in my embroidery box a color that is almost the same as the ribbon.
