Rainbow Victorian Heart

Well... I did what I promised to do. I made Laura's Victorian Heart again and I did not forget the ring at the bottom this time, :-). Here it is, in rainbow colours (almost .... because I am short of two colours of the rainbow). The drawback of using many colours is the cut and hide after each round.

I did this in a slightly different way from what Laura wrote but the ds counts are still the same. The first round (inside) was made the way Laura wrote it because I need to get the initial heart shape. But, for each of the other rounds I started at the top instead of at the bottom. And I used a SCMR for the ring at the bottom.


And this one here ....hmmmm.... I don't know what this is. I was making one of my small snowflakes and didn't have enough thread to finish it. So, it became what it is. ......

  1. Your rainbow heart is very pretty. I don't know what the "what it is" is either, but i like it!

  2. Lovely little heart and the flower would make a wonderful motif on a hanky or on a crazy quilt patch. =)

  4. Your heart is very pretty, as for the unfinished snowflake it has become a flower with stem and two leaves. If you dye it you could use it on a CQ block.

  5. Pretty heart. I think that darling little bit o' tatting would look cute on a card or a scrapbook...it looks like a little wildflower.

  6. Thank you, thank you ...
    My daughter picked the colours for the heart. She is good at mixing and matching colours while I'm not. That is why you seldom see me tatting in colours.

    The hmmmm.... does look like a wildflower, .. or a thistle maybe (?)

    Sadly, I am not a quilter.

  8. It is a wildflower. For me, all those little 'something' will end up on cards to send to friends and families.

  9. Love the colours of the heart! I know what you mean not good at mixing and matching colours, but it may be a case of lack of confidence. I too love to ask my children if my choices of colours look ok to them.

  10. The colours do the heart justice, very eye catching. Now my suggestion for the "un-named" would be to do it in green and then it would be a lovely leaf to add to a flower.

  11. It is a very pretty heart in deed.
