Hearts on Fire and Put your foot down #83

blog hop

Welcome to Put your foot down and my stop on the Hearts on Fire Blog Hop. The hop is hosted by Carol at Just Let Me Quilt so make sure you stop by to give congrats on a well organized hop.

Some time had passed between when I signed up for the hop and when I actually started working on my quilt. The theme for the hop is hearts as you have already guessed but not red hearts, any color but red. Well…..I forgot that part. It wasn’t until I returned to Carol’s post for participant links that I noticed it in CAPS. So you will see red here, its a marbled red that is like a dark orange. Okay, it’s red.

  1. Denise, I’m late getting here, but trying to catch up!! Thanks for sharing your beautiful block and quilt!!

  2. Cute block! That’s a lovely shade of red, we’ll just ignore the “not red” part for now!

  3. The first picture made me think it was just fine – I mean, the heart was white. It wasn’t until I saw the quilt picture that I realized that the outside is a red heart. That’s a good one!! Red is ok is me.

    1. Thank you Gail. I’m hoping to start on my piano keys tonight and will start blogging Monday. Fingers crossed.

  4. I have participated in many hops and in several of them I have missed a key word here of there. I choose to look at your heart as white with red trim. We are all just glad that you posted this lovely piece for us to view on the hop. Good job and thanks for offering the pattern.

  5. HAHAHA I love your thought process. It’s marble, it’s orange, ok it’s red. You sound so much like me! What you forgot to mention is that it’s FABULOUS! Thanks for sharing the fun pattern too!

    1. Lol. If you lay it next to a true red it really does look more orange, lol. Thank you for stopping by. I’m working my way to the list with all the blogs and sure I will get to yours soon.

  6. I’ll go with orangy-red hearts because they aren’t bright red like the usual Valentine color. I love this quilt and the border you added around it! Two colors makes those hearts show up in a beautiful way. Great job on this one! Thank you, Denise, for sharing your hearts with us today! xo

  7. Hi Denise! I had to laugh out loud – okay, it’s red. Yes it is and it is very pretty. It turned out great and it sure looks nice hanging there! ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. I knew you would find humor. Thank you Roseanne. I’m trying to get to all the other blogs and hopefully stop by yours soon.

  8. Your quilt is beautiful! You have white in your blocks too, so they are not ALL red! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
