friday finish

I have my first friday finish for February : )  It is a rainy morning and the pictures aren't wonderful, but the 4 hearts mini quilt is no longer a UFO!

The pink crochet thread and big stitches were just what this little quilt needed.

I used a scrappy binding, matching the color of the 4 hearts.  The strips were cut at 2 inches instead of the usual 2.5 inches, making it narrower than I would normally make for the binding of a larger quilt.  

The measurements for this mini quilt are 20 X 20 inches.

It is hard to see from this photo(click on the photo for a closer look), but the pink stitches look nice against the green backing fabric.

I can now begin decorating for Valentine's Day......sweet!
I am linking up to Finish It Up Friday.

You did a great job, Elizabeth! I'm seeing heart projects all over blogland, and I need to make one for myself. This looks simple, but with lots of personality.

What an adorable little quilt! I agree, the large pink hand-quilted stitches really are a terrific finishing touch.
