Tutorial Throwback Thursday - Lots of Love Mini

With Mother's Day coming up on Sunday, I figured today's Tutorial Throwback Thursday, needed to be all about mom.   And what better for mom then the Lots of Love Mini!!!  This is a fun tutorial that walks you through how to make heart blocks and then shares them in all different sizes, so you can truly customize your mini for you and yours ;) 

I made this Lots of Love Mini for Barbara.   The Big hearts on the top represent her and her sweetheart Bob.  Then the medium hearts are her children and daughter and sons in-law.  And finally, the small hearts are all of the grand kids.  Isn't that so fun!!! What a wonderful way to say I Love You to Mom , a mini that represents everyone she loves :)    

And this Lots of Love Mini post came about from my Splendid Sampler Lot of Love Block, that represents my Sweetheart and my 5 children.   The pattern for the block is found in the book, but I walk you through the steps of making the hearts in the tutorial, and then as you surf down to the mini part, it has the cutting directions for all the different size hearts.   So you can just customize your mini for you ;)

And then just quilt and bind your Lots of Love Mini.  I love this crosshatching quilting, and it goes nice and fast because you are working on a mini.   I love that I can do more detailed quilting on a mini as it won't take me forever ;)     And because this is a mini, you could even get it whipped up before Sunday!!! 

And now this Lots of Love Mini is on Barbara's sewing wall and was the start of her Mini collection.    And I hope you want to make one too!!!   I hope you have enjoyed today's Tutorial Throwback Thursday as much as I have!!!      So if you  want to make a Lots of Love Mini  simply click on any of the project name links for the free step by step tutorial.  And when you are done,  I would love to see your Mini's!!  You can email me a picture at, post it to social media with #happyquiltingwithmc  :)   I can't wait to see your Lots of Love Mini quilts!!!

Thanks for popping in today!!!   I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!!
