Sometimes simple is perfect.
I wanted to make a Valentine Quilt this year. And I wanted it to actually be done by Valentine's day. So, I decided to keep it simple.
I bought a few 1/2 yard cuts of some sweet Tanya Whelan fabrics and added some red and white polka dots and some red gingham. I cut it all up into 6 inch squares to make the most of those 1/2 yard cuts and laid it all out on the floor.
I ended up with an 11 x 13 layout, making the quilt finish at about 60 x 71.
It is backed with the same white with red dots that I used in the front. It is bound with the red and white dots fabric.
I decided I wanted to keep the quilting simple as well. I quilted it my self on my teeny tiny machine. This is the biggest quilt I've attempted to do on my machine and it came out great! I just quilted 1/4 inch on either side of all the seams. Just enough quilting to give it a nice soft feel.
I am so happy with how it turned out and how quickly it came together.
Sometimes perfectly simple is simply perfect!
