I think I have found my new love, patchwork! How its taken me so long to have a go at making a quilt I don't know! We had glorious sunny cold crisp days last week, and I decided to ignore the paperwork, cleaning, ironing and everything else on my list, head up to my work room enjoy the lovely bright skies and light and make my first my first mini quilt, Liberty Hearts.
I bought this lovely kit from the Knitting and Stitching Show because I couldn't resist these gorgeous Liberty Prints, and as someone new to patchwork I thought a kit would be the best way to start.
Once I'd started making it I couldn't stop, it was sooo addictive!
I loved the methodical cutting of all the pieces,
appliquing the hearts
deciding on the piecing
and finally my favourite bit the quilting!
As you can see from the back I kept the quilting quite simple but I am so chuffed with result!
Here it is!
** The Liberty Heart Kit is available from Sunflower Fabrics.
