Heart Quilt Finished


I got a second quilt done this year. I started this quilt in January with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge over at SoScrappy. The colour of scrap we were working on were Red for January. I added in pink and of course  needed some neutral scraps. This photo is taken outside in the full sunshine with my son Adam trying to hold it but he is not quite tall enough yet. Someday he will be.

I have also added this post to Crazy Mom's Quilts Finish up Friday. Check out the other finished quilt projects. I have added this post to The Magic Onion were you can find more than just quilts but many crafts some are good for kids too.

I took this photo on my design wall and the blocks for Orca Bay are in behind.


I machine bound the quilt with a red strip fabric. This Red strip was part of the bundle I got from a lady who needed to sell her mother's stash. I got an apple box worth of fabric for $50.00 and many of the reds and neutrals used came from her.


A close up of the front to show the quilting. I may give this quilt away and wanted to finish it quickly. I kept the quilting simple and did an all over hearts and loops free hand.


The back side shows the quilting again.

  8. Oh, your heart quilt turned out so cute and I like the quilting on it too. Great finish! My quilt middle is together but I'm putting a border on it then I'll quilt it. I'm not sure if I'll get it finished before Valentine's Day but I'm going to try.
