Random: A bit of snow in Monday

 

{ the heart}

 {the scraps}

 {the graphic paper got soak in the water}

Snow keeps coming, but in a very gentle way. No school for S today, but I start two hours later today. She is all packed with her favorite books, treats, and games. She is coming with me to school and for sure will try to peek in the classroom where I will be teaching this afternoon. 

While we got snow in a little bit this weekend, I have the time to finish up this mini pixelated heart. It is inspired by {Jolene aka Blue Elephant Stitches}. Jolene show a visual construction on the photo and that really help out the piecing direction.

{Svetlana aka s.o.t.a.k handmade} made a so sweet {pixelated heart pillow}. I just love her random red prints and the low volume background.  The backing fabric is so lovely! 

I haven't decided on the backing fabric and having hesitations on how to finish this mini heart piecing. It might be another mini quilt as far as I have in mind. Also adding little embroidery might be lovely.  All the pieces are cut in 1.5"x1.5" and finished at 1"x1" and this is a great scrap project!

  7. I love this quilt and as soon as I finish Chloe's quilt I am so going to make this one. Except I think I'm going to make it larger. Same size squares (3 1/2") as I have ordered the Go Cutter for that size but I just want it bigger. I'll probably leave the heart the same size. Thanks for sharing once again Chase and it's gorgeous.

  9. This is so adorable Chase. I've been seeing a few version around blogland, but I love yours. The blues and greens give it such an airy feel. Gorgeous.
