Embroidered hearts

I'm working on some sweet heart embroideries...here are two of them. The colors in the top are true-the hearts are done in hot pink, not red like it looks in the second photo.I've used outline stitch in the hearts and stems and backstitch for the flowers and the ribbon plus French knots, Lazy Daisy and straight stitches. I'm doing these for a baby quilt and love the idea of adding the baby's name in the ribbon.
I have two more hearts almost finished. These are the fabrics I'm thinking of using with the embroideries but I'll have to see if I like the repro 30s kiddy figurine fabrics once I start sewing things together.
I finished the piano border for the batik star quilt but I'm not sure about the corner squares so I'm still working on it.

Those beautiful hearts will go nicely with the print--what a cute baby quilt. The baby's name in the scroll will be just the right touch.
