You may remember that early this month I was busy scrap busting 1.5" squares from my stash in order to make some mini patchwork hearts? Wednesday, there was a peek at some machine embroidery. Well, today I can show you it was all for one project, a mini quilt.

Yesterday, I was ready to do the quilting, add binding and turn this idea into a finish!
|Quilting with my vintage Singer 201 (the quilt was pieced using my Singer 15-91). I love my vintage Singers!|
My lovely Singer 201 was used to machine quilt a freehand grid of wavy lines across the top. I debated other quilting designs, but again, simple won out. ;o)
The binding made use of trimmings from the backing of my Impromptu quilt, which added a nice pop of red (and dots.. oh, my!) to frame things.
|My Sweetheart Mini made use of all the patchwork hearts I stitched from 1.5" scraps in reds, pinks a few purples for good measure.|
The last stitch sewn, I immediately went to hang my mini above the loveseat in our living room.

Oh, look! There just happens to be a sweetheart pillow to match. ;o) Woohoo! That's two scrappy projects completed this month and a happy finish to my week. Hope your week has been a good one!
