We were asked to make a mini quilt, no larger than 24" x 24".
I have been racking my brain all week.
I settled on something this morning but as usual my idea took a turn and this is what I came up with.
My husband gives me cards and flowers through the year just for no reason. Well....he claims it is
his love for me (smiling). A lot of the times when I am away from him he will send flowers or have a
sweet card and candy on the kitchen bar when I come home.
I thought how fun would it be to have somewhere to display the card instead of in the drawer, this way I can swap out the cards if I want to.
I decided on how large I wanted the heart and then I quilted a square about that size and then after it was quilted I just cut out the heart.
Now you are inside how my mind works.
I have this blank heart and a few ideas....so I draped some red fabric across the middle...
didn't work for me.
So I drapped it to the side...and thought...hummmm a card would look nice in there.
Ran and got a card...oh yessss.
Hemmed the draped side....and figured I needed something on the other side to help the card stay in place.
you guessed it...cut out a strip, hemmed it...and I have the other side of my
heart in place.
See how cute this grandson is in here.
Then I thought....candy...I need somewhere to place some candy if I want to.
So I drew out the shape of the heart I wanted....then used my pinking shears to cut around them.
Here is another adorable grandson.
Sewed the little hearts on.
Then I made some hanging loops.
Since I already had the quilting done and wasn't sure if I wanted to do a binding....
I decided to just make another backing, sew 1/4" around the outside, leave an opening to pull
through and the rest is history.
This will be hanging in my pink room. You have heard about my pink room?
As a mother of five sons having a pink room was out of the question. Now they are gone and guess who has a pink room....oh yessss you are looking at her.
Loving every minute of it.!!
