Proverbs 4:23 (NIV)
23 Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.
This was my quilt for February. It’s a mini quilt, about 28″x28″. Once it was done I really wished I’d added on another like 7″ inches and made it a baby quilt instead. On the other hand, I think it’ll look really nice hanging over my sewing table once I get my new sewing room set up 😁
I appliquéd about a quarter inch from the edge of each heart, allowing them to fray. I thought it was a nice reminder that even the most ragged of hearts can be beautiful ❤️
If anyone wants to use this design for a baby quilt, feel free, but I’d love to see the finished product! I think this quilt would look great with other color combinations too.
Once I was finished with the mini quilt, I had an idea for the scraps.
Aren’t these scrappy pot holders adorable?! I ended up giving them to my mum for Valentine’s Day, so it was nice having a gift for her already made. Making these actually helped me to learn a decent amount. When dealing with hearts that you plan on turning, it’s better to not have a very deep v. I think that was the biggest problem with the first heart.
Then I had a lot of problems with the binding around the second one. It kept bunching weird. Does anyone have any suggestions to fix that?
The pot holders are scrap project #1 and 2 for the blog!!
It was so much fun for me to just get in the mood for Valentine’s Day.
It’s been pretty crazy in my life because my fiancé and I just found out for sure that we are buying a house!!
So, let me know any thoughts on the quilt or potholders!
