Christmas decorations are down and packed away and the Valentine’s decor is starting to sneak in. Too early? I think not! Only 28 days until the day dedicated to hearts, flowers, candy and looooooove!
One year when Valentine’s was approaching I was re-learning to crochet. Thousands of hearts later…
But I don’t crochet much anymore. It’s all about sewing for me now. And I found this adorable little bitty quilt that Jacquelynne Steves posted on her blog, The Art of Home.
So I had to make it and share it with you!
Here’s my version.
This was supposed to be used as a mug rug but I turned it into a hot pad by replacing the batting with two layers of insul-bright batting. Then when I was finished with it I thought to myself I’ll never put a hot pan on this! It’s too pretty!
I was able to use bits and pieces from my scrap basket for the entire project! Always a good thing!
Jacquelynn Steves also included a tutorial on how to add the binding around those odd angles.
I think the embroidery was my favorite part of the project!
One more snap with my RCA dog!
This little project put me in the mood to make more heart-shaped designs! I have 28 days left. I could probably get a bunch of hearts done! (If I would just stay home!)
