Paper Hearts Made Mini - 2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge

Here is my entry for the 2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge - Radiant Orchid.  I have been in a mini mode lately and was inspired by Tula Pink's Paper Hearts' quilt from the book Sew Red (and with permission from Tula Pink) to make this mini version which measures 12.5" x 16.25".  

I used a different fabric for each of the hearts, one of the three hand dyes on the back (that I had previously purchased from a local quilter), and Cultivate by Elissa Barbieri for Clothworks as the binding to pull it all together. 

I kept my quilting very simple as it was all that was needed.

I really can't wait to add this to my wall of mini quilts.

Happy Quilting!


2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge: Radiant Orchid


  1. What a great idea to use Paper Hearts! I did a big one for Valentine's Day and loved making it. Yours is very cute!

  2. Wow - look at all those radiant orchid fabrics! This is a really sweet little mini - I'm sure you'll smile every time you see it on your wall :-D

  3. Looks so pretty in this small size. Love all the fabrics and colors.

  4. What a cute mini! I love that every heart is different, it adds a lot of interest to the quilt. :) And the quilting was a perfect choice as well. Gorgeous work!

  5. What a fun little mini! I love the binding, too, great choice!
