A Strong Heart Quilt for Project Quilting

I linked up my quilt "Strong Heart" for Project Quilting over at Persimon Dreams.

First, I pulled out all my bright fabrics!

Next, I made a Crazee Patch Paper Pieced Heart.

I used my Crazee Patch Paper Pieced Heart PDF Pattern on Craftsy or my Crazee Patch Paper Pieced Heart PDF Pattern on my website. 

It's a FREE PDF Downloadable Pattern on both websites!

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 added borders, next.

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 Online PDF Downloadable Pattern Store  as a PDF Downloadable Pattern.

I also used my Crazee Patch Paper Pieced Heart PDF Pattern.  It is FREE in My Online PDF Downloadable 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!
