Heart Quilt for Little Ladybug

 I've been working on Little Ladybug's quilt top.  I just need to add some sashing, maybe purple? She wanted hearts, so I found a great video tutorial over at Missouri Star Quilt co.  They even had some great ideas for the little scraps that are left over from making the heart block.  And I LOVE using as much material as I can!

Linking up over at Marcia's Crafty Sewing &Quilting Blog and Quilting by the River!  Check them out.  Marcia has some great ideas and helpful hints for new bloggers and all crafters!

Speaking of using as much material as we can, have you seen these...?  Ok, you can't see the picture very well.  A seller on etsy has taken all of her selvage strips and made potholders, quilts, ornaments and more.  You name and she's made it from SELVAGE!  I think she needs some sort of award for Cutest and most Economic Quilting idea!  I've started saving my selvage to make some Mug Rugs.  What do you think?  Well, I hope everyone has a great Quilting week. - Little Mama Hen.  



  1. The hearts are simply adorable! I'll have to watch that video. I hate having leftover scraps. It's great to use it up but I've never used selvages before! They actually look nice all together like that. Looking forward to seeing your finished quilt top!!

  2. Thanks Rosemary. Hope you have a great quilting week. I'm looking forward to more of your free motion quilting *designs*. April

  3. Great hearts and I like the idea of purple sashing! Thanks for sharing!
