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.
