New Quilt

Well I finished it. It's done. My junk, er I mean my Whimsical Quilt, as Andrew calls it.

Here's the story. I received a bunch of scraps and got tired of them laying around, so one afternoon I just started sewing them together and got this:

The hearts you see are an effort to cover up mistakes. I think the mistakes turned out pretty cute! It did bust out my stash and it will go on the end of the bed as insurance against those extra cold nights.

Now this next one I didn't do the quilting.  The Lord, however, did some nice knitting....

Har har har. 

Did you notice the rounded corners on the quilt?  That was my first attempt.  It went ok.  But one thing I know, I hate using bought bias tape to do the bindings on quilts.  I've used it on two and it just doesn't turn out as nice.  Yuk.  But I had a ton given to me and I wanted to use it up. 

What do you think?  At the very least, it is warm and serves it's purpose.  I don't think I'll ever quilt something just to hang on a wall.  I want all my quilts to work.  Heck, I worked to make them, they should earn their keep!

That is so cute! And the hearts just add to the charm. Looks like they were planned.
