Hooray, I finished up my mini quilt just in time for Valentine's day!
I added some black and white binding as planned, although I did mess this part up to tell the truth. I must have been thinking of bunting making while I was cutting, piecing, and pressing my binding because when I finished I had made a double folded role of binding? The type I'd use for bunting making, not quilt binding?? I decided just to work with it and I think it turned out just fine.
I hand stitched it on using some of my very favorite red & white baker's twine. I think it adds a sweet little touch and matches the baker's twine pom pom Heart Felt Garland I made for our fireplace last year.
My favorite part of this mini is definitely the pieced heart! Of course, I'll never get tired of seeing red & aqua together.
The more I look at the reverse side of my mini, the more I like this side, too! It's a little dark, but I'm happy with the way it looks like a simple sketch.
This was a fun project for sure! A nice new little Valentine's Day decoration, but not too themed that I'll need to put it away right away. I think decorating with sweet, red hearts and "love" themed projects is perfectly acceptable all year round, don't you agree? I do still have plans to make this pieced heart pillow by Anna very soon!
Making these improv blocks and mini quilts is some of the most fun I have ever had sewing and making, ever!!
Yes, I quite like these mini quilts! I actually started a new one yesterday that I can't wait to share later in the week!
Happy Monday, friends!
