Today I'm showing lots of little 1-1/2" HST's to make-up this heart lap quilt. There are three 9" blocks plus I added sashing all the way around to make it 30" square. I used 4 different shades of reds and pinks that I had in my stash.
V and Co. made a quilt last year with her ombre fabric line. I loved it! I needed to make my own but with only a small amount of fabric in my stash I had to make a smaller version. My goal was a table topper but it just didn't look quite right on the table.
I straight-lined quilted the entire quilt. I still need a lot of practice getting the stitch length to be consistent and the width of each row the same. To my family they will never notice and that's all that matters to me.
My heart table topper is now hanging in my living room. I smile every time I walk in the door and see it. I might have to keep it up for awhile since outside is covered in the white stuff. Below is a picture of the Great Lakes nearly frozen over for the first time in over 20 years. It's a beautiful picture!
