Valentine's Day Heart Mini

Welp, I did it again. Distractions are the rule here in Squirrel-ville. I'll blame this one on The Joyful Quilter whose blog I visited earlier this week. She had purchased a cute little heart mini quilt and then made one herself. The original was made by Jayne at Twiggy and Opal, who lists the Rainbow Heart Trio pattern in her Etsy shop. Before I knew it, the PDF was in my cart, and then it flew out of my printer.

This scrap-friendly pattern gives instructions for various combinations of a large single heart, one large double heart, and one small heart. I chose the large double heart.

I used darker tones and a faded-look flowery print as background for the small center heart. Then I used the same colors for the larger squares in the outer heart against a creamy blender for the background. I didn't want to distract from any of the dark red scrappy goodness, so I bound it with the same creamy blender.

These pieces belonged to my Mom. Inside the heart dish
is a ruby rhinestone heart pin that she used to wear

For the backing I used the same fabric as the center heart.

Happy Valentine's Day to you! This post is linked to Oh Scrap! on Cynthia's blog, Quilting is More Fun Than Housework.
