Little Quilts, Continued
These two little quilts were a much more successful quilting effort.
This nine patch little quilt was the first project I made from the book Little Quilts, by Alice Berg, Sylvia Johnson, and Mary Ellen Von Holt. I loved these projects, because when I had all seven of my children living at home, there was very little time for quilting, and a small quilt was all that I could manage.
The heart quilt was made with my daughter, Stephanie. She was very motivated to get this done--and we made it in one day. She cut out the hearts and heat appliqued them. We then machine appliqued the edges and made the border! I hand quilted it in a large criss-cross pattern with embroidery floss. Fun, fun.
