Lots and lots of hearts

My "Love and Kisses" quilt that I started before Easter has progressed nicely and I have finished the quilt top. It took me some time and many dives into my fabric stash to find the right fabrics for the hearts themselves and then I spend some more time choosing the right solids for the background.

Sometimes I used a complimentary colour to the patterned heart fabric and sometimes I used something contrasting and wild. It was a fun process and halfway through it I found my groove with the inset seams and had developed a nice production line.

The quilt is made of 42 heart blocks at 8 1/2" (finished size 8") arranged over 6 in a row with 7 rows in total which makes it a nice rectangle quilt.

I used many favourite fabrics in this, such as 'Sherbert Pips', 'Girls at Play', added some precious Heathter Ross and also some basic prints that did not need to be fussy cut.

It is such a fun quilt that makes me ridiculously happy to tool at. Now it's time to choose the backing and I recruited some help for this in the form of my brothers partner and their daughter because I decided this quilt will go to me little 10 months old niece.

I imagine that when Sophia is a little older that she will start spotting images on the quilt, so a proper "I spy" quilt.


  1. Those are so cute! The fussy cutting is great

  2. its fabulous and all those v seams at the top of the heart, works brilliantly!

  3. This is a great idea for an i-spy quilt, and a perfect present for your niece.
