Hearts of Friendship Mini-Quilt

This mini-quilt I made in an adventurous sew-along with so many talented and creative wonder-makers. 

It all started with one lady who created the pattern and the first member of the wild series of colourful minis. The amazing Elise from EliseAndEmilie should take the blame for spreading the friendship in nine really tiny in size but big in love hearts. You should see the creativity that bloomed out in the web from all the 'corners' of the world. 


My fabric choice for the hearts is the lovely TILDA ♥ fabric. 


For the background I used the amazing HAORI ♥ in soft cream. 


I didn't want the hearts to be too much in contrast with the background. The soft and subtle colours on both TILDA and HAORI perfectly represent my understanding of friendship. I made sure to help the hearts pop out contouring them with matching colour embroidery floss. 


The crochet lace is another way to underline the delicacy of this project. And the burned wood buttons in each corner only helps with enhancing the natural look.


This project came out just in time for Easter. I don't have my big family around. Holiday celebrations, far from home is mostly about sharing time, meal and emotions with friends. So the Bulgarian traditions that our small family treasures are shared with friends. 

You could find the free pattern from generous Elise here.


Happy Spring, dear friends! Thank you for visiting!
