Mini Quilt

Most of you are probably familiar with
 http://www.aquiltinglife.com/ She has such a lovely blog and a couple of months ago she posted this sweet little mini quilt....
It took me longer than expected to finish, but thats because I decided to hand quilt this sweet project and I have not hand quilted in a long time!

It's not perfect hand quilting, but it looks so pretty......

the stars are my favorite!

Log Cabin Heart Tutorial

Make a log cabin block using 1.5" strips. This tutorial may be helpful if you are not familiar with this block.

After your block is made fold it in half. You want the lighter strips towards the top and the darker strips towards the bottom.

Make a heart template using paper. After you make the template place it over the block and hold it up to a window to get an idea of what your heart will look like. You do not want to cut any of the lower dark strips. Do not cut the point!

See how the center block is now the center top part of the heart....

Add your ribbon, lace or whatever you will use to hang your heart. Add the batting to the back. I use my cheap batting for craft projects. I had to press mine down because it has a medium loft to it.

Cut out the backing fabric and place on top of the heart block. The backing fabric gets placed wrong side up. Leave a 2 - 3" opening for turning (you can see my pen marks). Stitch 1/4" all around.....turn, press, and hand stitch the opening closed.

Happy Valentines Day!
