This mini-quilt is for a Valentine swap at tonight's LA Modern Quilt Guild meeting. I don't know if I should be sharing this yet as it's supposed to be a blind swap but, well...I guess I don't care.
Truth be told, I painted our bedroom last week and I am tempted to spend the entire day in my pretty new, non-hell pit room. Blogging is a perfect bedbound activity.
The quilt is tiny; about 9" x 12". The technique I used to make the hearts is a variation of this circle technique. The biggest difference is that I didn't sew the pieces together until I quilted it. I left them glued together and then quilted around each heart.
The label in the back is the same kind of deal. I didn't think I'd be able to match the hearts on the front and back perfectly so I didn't try. It would be a great look if I could pull it off though. Maybe next time.
Also, rounded corners! I love them.
