a challenge win

The larger guild that I belong to has a challenge every year.  This year the challenge was "what can you do with a panel?".  We get the challenge on the last Saturday of January and it's due the last Saturday of October.  I always go to a small quilt show and one stop shop hop with my friends every year in February and I found a Valentine panel.  I apparently have a weakness for Valentine fabric because I have a lot of it already.  So other than the panel the whole project came from my stash.

Each panel had two of the big heart squares with some really dark red polka dot fabric between them.  I bought two panels and used three of the heart squares in the bed runner and then cut the smaller hearts out of the fourth heart square and appliqued them to a background and made the throw pillow.

I totally love the way this looks on the guest bed.
