TBT…Sweet Little Quilt

IMG_3070 edited

I finished this tiny quilt in 2014! I made it so I could take a learn to long-arm class while my family at the time was away for 10 days. It took me 45 minutes to long-arm and I have unfortunately not been back since.

I stashed the paper doll fabric long enough so decided to use it for the backing. Also, I used industrial strength Velcro brand hook and loop tape to adhere the quilt to the wall for photographing. None of the adhesive transferred to the quilt which was fantastic and I will definitely be trying this on more quilts. I pinched this idea from a fellow quilter on Instagram whom I currently cannot remember. If it is you, would you kindly leave me a comment so I can give you all the glory! I pinched this idea from Sue who blogs at Sevenoaks Street Quilts. Check out this blog post for more information on how to use the Velcro.

Hearts are my favorite motif so that is what I attempted to quilt on this quilt using a pantograph. My first heart was atrocious, my last heart was the best.

    1. Thank you Sharon for your comment. I enjoy using some of my favorite hoarded fabric! Then I can enjoy them every time I use a quilt.
