Ayla is my beautiful new granddaughter, how wonderful it is to have a new addition to the family.
This has inspired me to make a bassinette quilt for her, and since she has definitely stolen my heart. I am making her a heart quilt.
I started out with choosing fabrics, and even tho I don't consider myself to be a pink person, it is amazing how many gorgeous pink fabrics have made it into my fabric stash.
Armed with a pile of pink fabrics, ranging from light to dark and a pile of light background with minimal prints on them. (not too loud) I have started making what I call log cabin heart blocks.
Miniature blocks that have my creative juices flowing. After making several blocks and deciding to make them so they can be arranged on point, I think now I need to add a few applique hearts to the mix.
I love how the applique hearts turned out and how they changed the look of the quilt. They are just so cute.....
I loved quilting this little quilt, it was so simple with straight line quilting and a little free motion around the applique hearts.
Ayla's Hearts Pattern can be found on my website here.
Keep Well and Happy Stitching

How to press a Flying Geese Border ? This is the question I was asked so I have done my best to answer as it is not exactly what you might be expecting to see. Read more to see how I pressed the seams to get nice flat intersections.
Making four Flying Geese units at a time is a great time saver, and a wonderful method. I love to oversize the units and trim them down to the correct size for perfect blocks. Read how I go about making these versatile units that I use in almost every quilt I make.
