Description

This project is from Sarah Fielke's and Amy Lobsiger's book LITTLE QUILTS.

We have a new group on TB for sewing along in this book during 2015 - I hope you'll consider joining us! This is the quilt we've chosen to sew in February.

I decided to stitch this one up early and send it off to my sister, Paula (+dtscrapper ) as a small item to open on Christmas morning. I chose some happy, bright colors...and substituted gray for the brown (in the book). I picked some fun text fabrics, using one for the narrow border. The back is a print from Lotta Jonsdotter's collection Bella. And I added a sweet label from Sweetwater to remind Paula of the Christmas it arrived.

This was a fun quilt to make...there is some needle turn reverse applique to sew up the tiny hearts...but it goes fast! I decided to machine quilt this piece rather than hand quilt as I was running short on time!

The quilt finishes at 18.5" square.

Love your interpretation. I Wasn't a huge fan of the one in the book but after seeing yours, I changed my opinion. It's beautiful!

Great fabrics - I love the gray and the backing (I think I have that fabric:-) This is one of the quilts that I earmarked as making when I first read through the book!

luvstitching Thanks! This is a mini quilt (not a pillow) although you could easily turn it into a pillow! Can't wait to see yours!
Gardencrafter It is super fun to make! I like how changing the fabrics changes the look :)
