Tumbling Hearts - a Valentine's Day wall hanging

Do you find quilt block inspiration in the tile of your master bathroom shower. I do and this was the catalyst that was the spark for my newest finish.
I'm calling this quilt Tumbling Hearts.
The final design and block layout was not what I originally envisioned in my mind but I love the way it turned out in the end.
I quilted it using the Cutie Patootie panto and a medium Pink So Fine thread.  I keep wondering if I would have liked the other panto I had in mind and the lighter Pink thread better but I'm still happy with how this came out.
It's always fun to see the texture the quilting adds to the piecing.
It is now hanging on my wall in the great room, though the lack of sun on this dreary winter day doesn't make for the best lighting for pictures against the pale gold wall.
This quilt finished at 39 1/2" x 35".  For anyone that wants to make one for themselves, a little tutorial is coming soon.  Stay tuned.

I think it looks great - thread, panto, fabrics and all.

This is very cute and I love the pink thread for the quilting. Don't know what the other panto was but I think this one looks great Michelle.

So cute! This would be a darling baby quilt, too, without too much re-sizing.
