Shrinking heart

The heart mini quilt is all done and off to its new home with newlyweds. It's amazing how it shrinks from the first step with 3.5" squares to the end when you sew back together the 2.25" squares cut out with the template. But the result is oh so lovely!

I quilted it rather densely in a cross-hatch - taking quite some time at the machine even though the quilt is rather small. I think the effect is nice because it really softens stark reds and blacks. Plus I love the waffle-effect on the expanse of white background.
