:: Girly Mini Quilt ::

Have you seen Heather's art work? Besides quilting she is an awesome artist. She paints the cutest custom pictures of children. Check out her shop HERE! and her instagram HERE. Well, when I saw some of her paintings I immediately asked her if she would be able to paint me a picture I could use for my blog header.

She painted the picture that is my header now and I made her this mini for her little girls room. I stalked her Pinterest and saw that she had a Polaroid quilt pinned and I thought that would be really fun to make.

I used the idea but just came up with my own measurements for the blocks. The fussy cut centers are always fun. I stippled around each picture and then hand quilted each Polaroid.

Then I bound it with a favorite Liberty of London print. It's funny because while I was making the quilt I was thinking of stripes for the binding but my daughter suggested the Liberty and it was perfect.

I love my header! All of the details, the blue bird and strawberries, just perfect!!!! Thanks so much, Heather!

Happy Sewing!
