Heart Felt Quilt Along - Finish
I just loved making this quilt!!! All of the different hearts and just so fun, and I am just thrilled with how it all came together. I love the Graphite Cross Weave background fabric, and how it makes each of those happy hearts in Flirt fabrics by Sweetwater just pop!! And it especially makes all of the low volume prints just sing, so happy making!!!
I decided to go with an all over Echoed paisley for the quilting in light grey. It was pretty much a perfect match for the background fabric and still blends nicely on all of the prints. And I just love quilting echoed paisleys, they are just so relaxing to quilt.
And they have the benefit of adding some pretty amazing texture!!! Doesn't that just make you want to curl up with a good book in the sunshine :)
So if you are finishing up, You can download the backing pattern right here and it is requested for each pattern you download to donate $5.00 to the Make a Wish Foundation :) And how exciting . . . Fat Quarter Shop's annual charity QAL has reached their goal of $1000,000!!! And Moda Fabrics and Fat Quarter Shop have joined to match up to $30,000 :) What a wonderful charity quilt along that will grant so many amazing wishes :)
