Quilt U Be Mine Reveal!

Today is the day!  Thanks to Michele from Quilts From My Crayon Box  for hostessing another of these super fun round robins!  I'll be writing two posts today (I need to take the pictures for the one that I'll post later) about my mini that I got back.

I decided to expand the mini that I got back and make it snuggle sized for a friend of mine  but more about that in my next post.  Without further ado....

This is my starter block:

And this is the mini top I got back:

Isn't it adoreable??!!  I love it! 

To see the rest of the minis pop over here to this post on Michele's blog!  Quilt U Be Mine

So, I started adding borders to this and what I came up with is actually on my machine being quilted right now.  My next post (later this evening) will feature the added borders and the quilted quilt as soon as I get it done.  I'm so close to finished.  That post will also be a sort of "how to" add borders post.  It will explain the way I add borders to keep things from getting all out of whack.  If you read my blog you'll remember the wonkadoodle borders on the aqua/orange/black Fanciful Feline quilt that I had to take off and then put back on because of not doing one inner border correctly.  The further out I got the more out of whack they got.  

Anyway, I have friends that are taking up quilting and I thought a border post would be good since when I started I had the hardest time getting nice flat lying borders.

I know I've said this before, but I LOVE the way yours turned out and I can't wait to see how you took it to the next level :) Group 2 rocks!

Love your block - especially all those hearts. How wonderful that you are getting to make three Valentine quilts to give away!

I love the hearts! I am looking forward to your border post. Unfortunately I never measured my borders when I made my first few quilts and some bindings are really wavy. Now I take the time to measure and pin and it comes out perfectly flat!

Pretty little quilt!

Michele said...

Really cute and I totally love the way the hearts both in the center and on the outer edge go in all different directions. I can't wait to see what you've done with it.
