‘Milky Hearts’ in aqua was an unfinished mini quilt on my design wall from the March. It was enjoy to watch it there but the plan was to make it pillow …

… and pillow it bacame late last night … with a simple envelope backing …

Usually my furry friends, Nero or Hanna, present my quilts in this festival and I thought now it’s Nelli’s turn to do the job …
But she didn’t have any interest so I guess I have to do this on my own.

I found my inspiration from the hearts and my Special quilt book. You can read about the process and my inspiration in THIS POST. There is also link for the ‘heart’ tutorial and explination for the milky name.

I have to have at least one photo with blue sky even today there were milky wisps of clouds. Before heading to the garden I had a nice work on this balcony …
… sneaky peaky for my new project! But lets to the garden. We have a new, cute little garden and it starts to be ready for summer joy … sitting there hand quilting … sounds fun!
