Happy Valentine's Day 2017! I wanted to post this yesterday, but I had to wait until my daughter received her package today. I made this mini heart quilt for her to put up in her dorm room, but with the blizzards back east--she did not get the package until today instead of Friday...
Here is the backing. I love all the Bonnie and Camille fabrics.
I decorated the inside of the box this time. She has turned into a gym rat, so I wanted to acknowledge her hard work. She also needed more gym socks and body wash to support her gym addiction. I personalized a bunch of hearts with messages and of course there are a few chocolate goodies in there plus gloves, hand warmers, a trashy magazine, gum, mints, etc.
I did not do much last week, but I made up for it this last weekend. I finished up the quilting on my purple Chains of Love Baby Quilt. I stuck with straight line quilting as recommended for quilting with a minky backing. It is 47 inches square and was a free pattern from Amanda at Jedi Craft Girl and Amber at Gigi's Thimble
The machine quilting is simple, but effective. The minky backing is AMAZING!!! It was so soft, warm, and luxurious to sit under while I hand sewed the binding down. I am going to dig through my heaps of tops awaiting quilting and find one to quilt with a minky backing for myself. I am sold on minky for backings especially for baby quilts!
For the first time this month, I worked on some Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks. February's color is teal which I love! I made my log cabin medallion blocks--five of them. I am also nearly done with hand quilting the border of my Salt Box House Quilt. I have a four day weekend coming up, so I hope my progress continues!
