Sweet on You … Sew it – Show it

Joan from Moose Stash Quilting announced this blog hop way back in December! I had an idea of what I wanted to do, so I signed up right away!

It was a fun and easy quilt to make! It is called “Hugs and Kisses Quilt” from Melissa Corry’s book “Charming Baby Quilts.”

All of the fabrics were from my Island Batik scraps and I only cut into pieces that were smaller than a fat quarter. Many were from various collections. And for something scrappy like this – they all work well together.

I finished quilting and binding this one day while sewing on Zoom with some friends. I rushed outside to attempt to take a picture in the sun, but the sun was gone and the wind had picked up. How I managed to get a still picture is amazing to me!

Quilt Stats:

  • Fabrics: Island Batik scraps paired with Island Batik’s solid white.
  • Size: 48″ x 48″
  • Pieced with Aurifil #2600 Dove Grey
  • Quilted with Glide thread “Peacock” using mostly 4″ Cupid ruler (Silly Moon) with the occasional 3″ heart.
  • Hobbs 80/20 on the inside
  • Scrappy binding

For quilting all the hearts, I would stitch a heart and then back-track to a spot, then start the next heart. This way, each of the hearts are joined together. And here are close-ups of the quilting:

    • Thanks, LJ!!! It’ll hang in a store for a bit – I’m planning on teaching a class for this quilt. And a friend of mine has already claimed it! So it will go to her afterwards! 🙂


  3. This is so cute and your quilting of hearts was perfect for this! Taking photos on windy days is definitely a challenge. I think the photo looks great and shows off this pretty quilt in spite of no sun and wind. I’ve tried emailing you a bunch of times, but who knows where the messages have gone. Maybe spam? Maybe the internet world is trying to keep us apart? LOL
