A Lovely Finish


This quilt came about because I ended up with a good handful of patchwork squares leftover from my original Miss Kate bundle.  This is the 4th quilt I made from that bundle plus I made 3 pillows and 2 doll quilt sets and I still have a pretty good stack of scraps leftover!!!

I was in the mood for some Valentine's love and this pattern goes together so quickly I knew it would be ideal for all my patchwork pieces.


The last time I did this quilt pattern the heart wasn't as easy to see from the background so this time I decided to make the heart obvious by using white for the background.


This is a baby quilt size and it finished up at 36 inches square.  I used 3 inch patchwork squares for the heart.  I really like how fun and bright this one turned out.


For the binding I used a red with white polka dots print.  It wasn't part of the Miss Kate collection but I had it on hand.  I don't remember where it came from.


I really went to town with the quilting on this one.  I crisscrossed the patchwork pieces and then did those dense straight lines zig zagging around the heart.  For the border I did long straight lines that crisscrossed at the corners.  

I like the way it turned out but boy it took a long time.   I am a quick finish gal.  I have found over the years that if a project takes too long then I get bored and distracted.  That much quilting was about as much as I can handle.  Anyone else the same way?

Anyways, this one is available in my etsy shop just in time for Valentine's Day or it would be perfect for a baby shower gift too.
