Blue Blue, my Heart is Blue

Here on PEI, its mid-winter and holy o-my-goodness, its frosty outside. But my heart is warm and toasty and thats good enough for me.

Hearts on Fire is my first 2021 Blog Hop. And it has a twisty-turner-oo to make it more exciting. Today is the first day and its my day to post. But before I get to that, thanks so much to Carol S. at for hosting the Hop. Its a very good thing.

Carol says the rules are very simple, all we have to do is….

“Make something with a heart in any colour, BUT NOT RED…get creative! It can be big or small, in a quilt, a bag, or whatever.

I’m a quilter and I love mini-quilts so there is really no question of what’s going to happen here. Its a Mini Quilt.

As you know the hot hot hottest spot in a flame is in the very middle and its blue—so of course I’m making a heart with a blue centre. My mini-quilt is inspired by Crafty Staci at I am pretty darn excited to share my version sion of her pattern.

Here it is!

  22. thedarlingdogwood says:

    I didn’t think about blue being at the center of a flame! I love your blue heart. I always think about Blue in January, maybe it’s the colder temperatures.


  23. Good Morning! Lovely modern looking heart. Usually we are blue with cold here in New England, but it has been a very mild winter so far.
    February is usually or snowiest and coldest month, though, so it may or may not continue. Thank you for joining in the blog hop … 🙂 Pat
