Radiant heart

I finished up this quilt just under the wire for the 2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge with On the Windy Side and play crafts.
I've been wanting to make a pixelated heart quilt ever since I saw ones by Jolene at Blue Elephant Stitches, Kelly at Kelby Sews, and Amanda at A Crafty Fox. I used Amanda's dimensions to make this quilt for a purple-loving friend who is getting married soon. The finished quilt is about 68x86.

I had some random HSTs left over from this quilt, and I put those to use on the back along with some random purple solids I had in my stash.

I made my binding strips from the extra backing fabric, so I was able to do a little matched binding a la Deb from A Quilter's Table.

I'm linking up with the 2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge!

I love it Katie, and the back is equally awesome. Good job on the matched binding too, Debbie will be so proud! ;)

I love it, Katie! The low volume prints are a perfect background. And I love what you've done with the back -- fabulous!

Anne said...

Oooh love that ground of low volumes with the purples in the heart! And such a perfect wedding quilt. :)
The back is also beautiful and I love the matched binding!

I love not only the heart but that you paired it with all those low volume prints! So pretty and I know your friend will love it too!

Erin Quinn said...

Oh my goodness! I love it! I love those scrappy hearts and add some perfect purples and low volume - it doesn't get better!
Until you turn it over and the back is the bom diggity! Simply gorgeous!

Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening. I appreciate
you taking the time and effort to put this content together.
I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
But so what, it was still worthwhile!
