Pixelated Heart Quilt

Pixelated Heart Quilt :: Dandelion Drift

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  I absolutely love Christmastime and this year, I started my gift sewing a bit early (as in before Thanksgiving), and that has helped make the Christmas rush much less stressful!  I really need to remember to start early every year!

This is a gift I sewed up for my sweet niece who is 4 years old.  I wanted her to have a throw sized quilt for her to snuggle under when she watches movies or is playing!

I followed this tutorial as a guide.  It is a really well written tutorial that walks you through what to cut, color placement, and piecing together.  I didn’t follow it word for word though.  I purchased a kona cotton charm square pack, which has fabric precut to five inch squares.  I took these squares and then cut each one into 4 squares, yielding (4) 2.5 inch squares per each charm!  This ended up being the perfect amount for the heart on the quilt!

The white on the front is kona solid white, the binding is artisan shot cotton from the imagine gnats shop, and the backing was an old art gallery Leah Duncan print.  I absolutely love how this whole quilt turned out, and we exchanged Christmas presents early with my niece, and she loves it too!
