Scrappy Saturday - Red

I found a fat quarter of this fun fabric in my stash and decided to make a little scrappy red quilt featuring this fabric in the border.  I collected up my red scraps and made some hearts using the dimensions from Bonnie Hunter's crumb heart blocks.

These heart blocks are so cute and really fun to make. And I found the perfect binding, which was cobbled together from scraps and just barely made it around the quilt.
Looking at in on the computer screen, I think the border is too wide, but I just love that fabric and it makes me smile, so that makes it perfect in my eyes!
I already have 2 other ideas for these little heart blocks...making a more miniature size (these are quite large at 4") and combining the hearts with the wonky letters from Tonya's book.

Hop on over to Angela's blog and see what the other rainbow scrap quilters are making this week - click here.

  6. Most people wouldn't consider 4 inches quite large, but I do think they would be unbelievably adorable in a mini size. Of course, I think almost everything is adorable in a mini size. The border is perfect, not too wide at all!

  9. Hearts seems to be the thing for reds, and yours look great. The border is definately not too large, it really sets off the center well.
