I {heart} this Quilt


 It's gonna sound corny but I am so in love with this quilt.  It may be one of my favorite finishes so far.  It was simple and quick and easy - 3 of the best things to be - well as far as quilts go:).

A few weeks ago I was perusing pinterest and came across a version of the pixelated heart from Blue Elephant Stitches.  I really liked the concept and so following her pattern I constructed my own.



I also used 3 inch squares but I picked a more subtle color palette.  I wanted to make the heart more hidden.  Plus I had just gotten a gorgeous fat quarter bundle of Kona pinks so it seemed like the thing to do.



I used Ana Davis' Animal Parade collection for the heart.  So I did the heart all prints and the area around the heart in the Kona solids.



Obviously this one is super girly.  I'd like to make a more gender neutral version but I'm not sure that even in blues it would appeal to boys.  Although I do think I'm gonna try it in yellow.  I think it would make for a really sweet throw quilt.




The binding is made from the scraps and I machine sewed it on as I am not patient enough for hand sewing.



Here's one last lovely picture:).



If you're interested it is for sale in my etsy shop.

  3. Such an amazingly sweet quilt. You've inspired me! I need to make my oldest girl an "I Love Lucy" snuggle quilt and it never occurred to me to make it with this pattern! Duh!

    Love yours - love how subtle it is. I would love to see it in yellow.
