After seeing Rita’s beautiful Headliner Text quilt, which uses some of the new Umbrella Prints fabrics for the center of each block, I was reminded that I had purchased a trimmings pack from Umbrella Prints. I won’t say how long ago that was, but let’s just say that I was really thrilled that I was able to even find it after all this time!
I love the hearts as the center of the block, and since I found two pieces of the heart print in my scrap package, I decided to make up two mini quilts based around that heart print. I pulled some warmer solids to go with these tan hearts and went with an off-centered square in square design. There were a few other little trimmings in similar colors, so they got added in here and there. I particularly love that little text print in the white section – each time I glance at it it reminds me of a signature on a piece of art.
And then I made up this second one, in mostly cooler solids. I wish I had had a bigger piece of the red hearts, but at the same time it was fun to be limited by the pieces I had. And of course it’s always fun to be able to use, and even base a quilt around, little scraps.
I think I may try some circular quilting on these, since I love the look and haven’t yet tried it, and then I think these two minis shall find a nice home on our walls!
