Here is my first quilt top finish of the new year, my Pixel Heart Quilt.
|Pixel Heart Quilt Top|
There are many variations of this type of quilt out there in cyberspace and I decided that I would create one of my own.
I stuck with the traditional low volume background with a red heart, though I think this would look great with a different colour heart or in reverse.

I love some of the creatures that have made it into the quilt, there are butterflies, ladybirds and bees!
|The heart even has some bees buzzing around|
And for any swashbucklers out there there are pirate references too!!

Now I just have to purchase some backing fabric and quilt it, I'm trying to decide between straight line quilting and free motion quilting - maybe I could combine the two? I can't wait!

This isn't a huge quilt, each finished square is approximately 2 inch square with a finished size of 46 x 50 inches. A great size for baby, a throw or lap quilt.
