Pixilated Heart!

A few months ago I took part in a Low Volume Charm swap.

Low Volume is a term used to describe quiet, soft, non-bright colours or prints.  In the swap I submitted 4 yards worth of LV charm squares (in 2 prints) and received back 112 squares in 56 different prints. 

And I knew exactly how I wanted to use them!

I've admired mini versions of this pixilated heart design, and wanted to upsize it to a good size quilt that I can teach in class.  This one is weighing in at approx. 68" x 68".

I had to add in a few more LV squares from my stash, and a good friend came to my rescue when I realised I didn't have enough reds!

I'm supposed to be writing up patterns this week, but I just couldn't resist getting this one sewn up!

I think this is my new favourite!

Hope you are having a great week so far!
