I love scrappy quilts and this one is a paper pieced pattern so it goes together quick and is easy to join without any bulky points.

I did a lot of big stitch quilting with perle cotton on this quilt.

If you are interested in hand quilting with perle cotton you can check out my tutorial here:

Big Stitch Hand Quilting with Perle Cotton 8

For this quilt I began near the center of the quilt and hand quilted around each X and O.

Then I did some straight line stitching about an inch or so apart around the perimeter of the quilt.

That dreamy gray fabric is Terra Australis by Ella Blue– Gray Bush Sticks.  I got it from The Hangar on etsy (see find fabulous fabrics for the link).  It’s the perfect gray… I love it!

Each X and O on the quilt has four hand-stitched hearts…

The template for the hearts is included in the pattern for those who might want to hand quilt also.  The quilt has such a soft drape from the hand quilting that I just LOVE!  It makes it so soft and cozy.  The pattern gives instructions for three sizes~ Lap, Twin and Queen.

    Wow – I’m amazed at all the work. Piecing together those striped blocks and then putting them together in that diagonal design. The hand quilting is very nice and the perfect touch with the hearts quilted in the blocks. Masterpiece in fabric!
