Aylas Heart's Quilt

Ayla's Quilt | Sharon Keightley Quilts

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.

Thread choices for invisible machine applique
Thread choices for invisible machine applique

Invisible machine applique seems to be mostly associated with either smoke or clear monopoly or nylon threads. When starting my journey with invisible machine applique these are the threads I used too. Now of course there are so many wonderful threads available, many of them suitable. The only thing that may be of concern is that you need a variety of colours, with monopoly smoke and clear threads there are only two colour choices, therefore limiting how many colours you need. Read more about my thread choices.
