little heart wall quilt

I’m kinda addicted to these cute wall quilts, I already have a fourth one planned! Soon all my walls will be quilts.

This one is truly tiny, only about 8×8 inches! I really enjoyed going through my scrap box for all the shades of pink and red. I did have to cut into actual fabric for a bit of the white (apparently I don’t often use neutral shades). I machine sewed the patchwork, and I have to say, I could use some work. Let’s just ignore those wonky lines, okay?

See, it looks better without the close-up. 😉 I haven’t decided where to hang this quilt yet, so for now it’s up with tape next to my previous wall-quilt. They really do make my bedroom so much cosier!

I’m still looking for cute blocks or mini quilt patterns, so if anyone has any recommendations that aren’t too challenging, send them my way! I may even brave my sewing machine again to see if I can’t keep improving. 🙂

simple wall quilt

I am the kind of person who wants my bedroom to be as cosy as possible, especially during the winter. My favorite pieces of ‘decor’ are my down comforter, crochet afghan, and wool blankets. 🙂

So I decided to expand my love for cosy blankets, and use them to decorate my walls as well, which are currently depressingly blank. I think making little wall quilts will not only fill my room with cosiness and color, and help my practice my subpar quilting skills. 😉

I just used scraps for the stars, with a solid gray background. You can see there is some unevenness (I really need to get, and use, rulers). I really like how it turned out though! One of my favorite parts of quilting is picking out the colors and arranging them, and I think that turned out very well. I hand-sewed the top and hand-quilted it, more because I’m still afraid of my sewing machine than anything.

Anyone have recommendations for other beginning quilt patterns that would look good in mini form? Because I am excited to make more!
