Candy Conversation Hearts

Not long ago, I found and finished an old UFO - a wallhanging of mini pieced hearts.  I enjoyed the technique and results so much I decided to make a second version, using some pink fabrics from my stash.

As soon as I finished the first block, I realized the pink hearts reminded me of the classic Valentine candy conversation hearts!
Once I had the blocks completed and the sashing attached, I snapped a photo and played with some creative calligraphy using Pixelmator.
I had way too much fun picking out different fonts and using them to create my own Valentine conversation hearts!
