Filled Heart take 2

Oh what fun I had making this mini quilt for my daughter.  I got to play with felt, buttons and choose lots of pretty fabrics.  The central design as you can see is my new filled heart embroidery, but as an alternative, I substituted some of the embroidered flowers for felt and button versions...and wow, I'm thrilled with how it turned out, so much so I've included templates with the pattern so that you can make the appliqued version if you prefer.

I love the pretty pastel shades of the felt, the mix of ditsy Sevenberry florals and dots and stripes by Tilda...I'm already planning what I can make with them next!!  I had a lovely few hours hand quilting using Pearl 8 threads and for the binding I used Stof Candy Pink gingham, which I cut on the cross, this is really effective don't  you think.

If you would like to make something similar, the centre linen panel is 8"square and is surrounded by a border of twenty four 2" squares, which in turn was framed with white panels measuring 2" wide and then finally I added the binding. 

Right I must dash, a certain young ladies bedroom is in need of a tidy, because believe me, there was lots of creative photographing and editing to crop out the mess that is her floor....I may be some time!!
