Pixel Heart in a Pixel Heart Quilt

Hello! It’s a chilly day for quilt photos today let me tell you! Minus 20 Celsius. And since one cannot properly operate a camera in Kombi gloves (the warmest gloves I’ve ever owned) my little fingers, especially the pinkies, were quite frozen after only a few minutes. Luckily I got some good shots in the five minutes my husband and I were outside!

So here is a finish I have been looking forward to! My Pixel Heart in a Pixel Heart quilt. I got the idea for this after seeing this Pixel Apple quilt on Pinterest.

Update: There have been several request for a pattern so I have written one. You can find it on my Shopify site here. If you are an EU (European Union) buyer please purchase on Etsy due to VAT tax.

Here is my husband holding up a big heart for me.

This quilt is a great way to use up scraps and is very easy for a beginner quilter to sew because it is just made up of squares.

The original quilt sold very quickly but I have made several more since this first one.

I love the text fabrics in the black. There’s a Carolyn Friedlander Architectextures in there and a newsprint text all about quilting terms.

Here’s a close-up of the background fabrics and the binding. The binding is the Handmade Stripe from Bonnie & Camille’s Handmade line for Moda. I do love a striped binding.

The backing is Petite Henna Garden in pink.

Close-up of the backing and binding. I love how the binding looks like a barber shop pole.
