Reneta's Pixelated Heart Quilt

Reneta made this super cute baby quilt off some ideas she saw on Pinterest.  The picture that caught her eye first were from the blog post from Renewing Mrs. Sew & Sew.  The original idea came from Blue Elephant Stitches and you can see that version here.  Reneta used 3" squares and added her own borders ideas to make a rectangular rather than square quilt.

Reneta has originally asked for a flowery panto, but nothing I had seemed the right scale, so when I suggested Heart Strings, Reneta was on board.  I normally choose more matching thread, especially on the back, but I decided to do a medium pink front and back.  The Dream Puff batting makes for a lovely weight with flannel backing.

This is such a sweet quilt and aside from the back ground came right from the pink scrap bucket.  Inspired to make your own?

  1. Lovely pinks and the design is super, and the quilting a great finish, not too dense, and hearts as well, a treasure for a wee girl.
