hearts flown in

when i went to get the hearts for my brick quilt top i found many more than i had put there.
an i wonder who could have done it.  someone who wanted to help me.

here is a portion of the quilt with hearts ironed on.
i think the other quilt i'm making will have hearts too.

an update

i am finally getting there. today i have added the two side pieces of calico-mortar...
i went on line to see if i could find a quilt like mine, and there wasn't one. there are
some more hearts to sew on and i am doing this soon. first i want to finish sewing the
front part. and have found something for the backing i think. although i love this
thought: mortar spread evenly all over the back of my brick wall. which will mean
pure calico giving it a nice finish. so, where's the hod? if my english serves me correctly
this is the word i will need.
