Okay, I sewed the blocks together. Then, I did a quick hunt through my stash and found some tiny hearts on white background that I feel will match well enough. I added the hearts w/white background border to the blocks first. Just to break it up a little..
I decided to try something different for a border. I sewed a 1.5 inch strip to the extra squares and alternated the squares.
Pieced them together and Ta Da! I'm so surprised at how well this came out considering a week ago I had not known these 4 inch squares were still traveling around with me.
I still have a few squares left so I'm going to add some appliqué hearts.
Yep, I just can't leave a quilt without some kind of appliqué work on it.
Project 365 ~ 1 Year!
Yesterday was my last day for 365Project. It is a relief. I no longer have to scramble for a photo each day, but I have to admit that I have learned a lot in one year of daily photos.

The first being - never leave home without the camera. Even when I just plan on a short trip to the grocery store, the camera was with me. I became more aware of my surroundings especially behind me.
I learned a lot about my camera and what it is capable of doing.........oh, so that's what that button is for!

Since I carry a large DSLR camera, I would feel very self-conscience about taking photos in unusual areas. I learned to ignore the strange looks while taking photos in Lowe's parking lot, kneeling in outdoor plaza areas, shopping in stores, or waiting in restaurants.

I also learned to response to people's comments.
"Wow! That's a big camera!" ~Great upper body strength builder.
"That camera looks expensive." ~And it is worth every penny because I love the results this camera gives me.

I plan to continue with 365Project, but not right away. I need a break plus we are heading into the Northern Cascades on Sunday and I probably will not have WiFi for almost a week.
