Next, I made a Crazee Patch Paper Pieced Heart. I used my Crazee Patch Paper Pieced Heart PDF Pattern. It's a FREE PDF Downloadable Pattern in my Craftsy Store.
Next, I trimmed it at an angle.
I added borders and cut them at an angle too.
I kept adding more borders.
Here's the photo I shared on Instagram, to say I just got started.
I could have stopped there.... but I decided to use My Easy to Sew Quilt Pattern to create a colorful background. I cut the strips and pieces smaller in scale than the pattern instructs, to make the background have more pieces and colors. My pattern is designed for 5 fabrics and I was using more than 25 fabrics.
I quilted it with 2 thread colors - 2 Color Ribbon Quilting with swirls and hearts every so often. I stippled in the light pink background around the heart and wiggle line quilted the heart and wiggle line quilted on the first border.
Here's a few up close photos....
I named my quilt "Strong Heart". It's a great name for such a boldly colored quilt.
More information about the quilt and my Craftsy Pattern that I used to create it:
I used my Easy to Sew Quilt Pattern for the basic part of the quilt. I scaled down the pieces that I cut for the Easy to Sew Pattern, as I wanted smaller sections of the quilt. The Easy to Sew Quilt Pattern is available in My Craftsy Pattern Store as a PDF Downloadable Pattern.
I also used my Crazee Patch Paper Pieced Heart PDF Pattern. It is FREE in My Craftsy Pattern Store.
I linked up my post for Project Quilting over at Persimon Dreams. Hop over and check out the beautifully bold and brave quilts that were created this week.
Enjoy your day!
