Here is my entry for the 2014 Umbrella Prints Challenge. I purchased a Soft Pack of scraps without any clear plan on what I would make. All I knew is that I love Umbrella Prints fabric and wanted the chance to work with some, so what better reason to buy some and participate?
Because I'm terrible at naming quilts this is simply called Tiny Heart. This quilt measures 10.5" x 8" and is made up of teeny-tiny half-inch blocks. I love the finished product! I was inspired by the deluge of pixelated heart quilts I'd seen recently popping up in the blogosphere recently and wanted to channel some of that into this quilt.
My goal for this challenge was to create something that used all of the scraps in the pack with minimal additional fabrics. So when the back arrived and realized the tiniest scrap in my pack measured 1" x 3", I said, "One inch squares it is then!" and got to work cutting. I decided to try hand quilting with perle cotton again and am very happy with the results. They came out much better than my first attempt.
The back is pieced using the rest of the larger scraps from the pack. I had just enough to make it work!
