Pixelated Heart [quilt top]

When I posted my Finish Along goals here and on Instagram last week, I got some lovely comments, but especially about my pixelated heart quilt. And possibly because of that, it made it to the top of the pile. After some backwarding and forwarding over the border I just went with my original plan and got piecing. I'm pleased I did!


I have to confess that I never want to piece a 3" square ever again at this point, but I love how the finished quilt top looks. I got some help basting it on Monday, and some willing quilt-holder-uppers helped me get this photo. It's not great, but with the weather the way it is at the moment, it's the best I can manage.

 And even better: this weekend, Daddy will be in charge and Mummy will be sewing. Or more precisely, quilting this monster, because I can't wait to get it on my bed!
