I recently sewed up another version of my Heartfelt Quilt – this time the crib size.
This heart quilt pattern is a lot of fun to plan and choose colours for. In an effort to make this part even easier, I updated the pattern to include colouring in sheets.
These sheets can be printed out and coloured in to your heart’s content, auditioning all your colour ideas.
I knew this quilt was for a little girl and that pink was a feature colour for the nursery. I rifled through my stash and found I had quite a good selection of pinks. After playing with some gold and pink options, I settled on the pink and teal/aqua combo instead.
To my eye it looks quite a modern colour combination. It was also very satisfying making the quilt entirely from stash (something I need to do more often, or so my cupboard tells me).
I was able to use the scraps left over from my half yards to form a scrappy binding for this one.
The backing was a run of yardage by Joel Dewberry that I’ve had for a while. I was very happy to find just the perfect project for it. The pattern is larger scale and very decorative – I’d love to see it with some embroidered embellishments. (Although it’s an older collection there is still some of the gold and turquoise versions of this fabric available on Etsy.*)
It was fun to sew up this heart quilt pattern with such bright, cheery colours. I do hope it’s new owner will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.
If you’d like to make your own Heartfelt quilt, you can find the pattern (now with colouring sheets) in my shop.
