Sometimes something small is better than something big 🙂 I designed this mini mini quilt for a sweet friend. It can be hung from a clothespin, tacked to a wall or bulletin board, or placed in a hutch; where ever you need a little happy! I love this jar die by Lori Whitlock.
I was thrilled to meet up with Lori at Quilt Market! She is a super talented designer of fabric, paper, Sizzix dies, and crafts.
Let’s get started!!
Sizzix Jar #2 Die
(8) 2 1/2″ squares of white dot
(8) 2 1/2″ squares pink print
Fabric for jar, lid, and hearts
Heat n Bond Lite
2 1/2″ x WOF binding
All seams 1/4″. Begin by sewing the 2 1/2″ squares together in an alternating pattern with 4 rows of 4. Press.
Fuse the Heat n Bond Lite to the wrong side of the jar fabric, lid fabric, and heart fabric.
As you can see this is a great scrap buster!!!
Die cut the jar, the lid and the hearts. I die cut 11 hearts. Peel off the backing paper.
Position the hearts on the jar and the jar on the quilt block. Mufasa and I are working very late tonight!!
Press the applique pieces in place.
Baste the backing fabric, batting, and quilt block. Quilt. I quilted loop de loos around the jar, then quilted with dark gray thread outlining the jar and lid. I also quilted inside each heart. Square up the quilt block and add the binding.
Tie a bow out of bakers twine and tack it to the side of the jar. I added a little silver heart charm – yes I’m cute 🙂
I hope you love making this project! I can’t wait to make more and give for gifts. You might want to tuck this little idea away for Valentines Day!!
