LOVE Mini Quilt

Hooray! A last-minute finish for Friday! 

My LOVE mini quilt is finished & hanging on our wall. I finished sewing the binding on tonight while watching an episode of Call the Midwife, then got it up on the wall right after that! 

I really debated about the binding. White was not my first thought - I was leaning toward a navy or grey print. But after auditioning a few, nothing struck me. And the walls of our room are a blue-grey, and the fabrics that I sort of liked for the quilt seemed to clash with the walls. So, white it is, and I'm hoping I don't regret it.

I followed the suggestion of the tutorial on Sew Mama Sew and hand quilted 1/4" from all of the letters, but I just used white perle cotton instead of a color to match each letter. It adds just a little texture.

Other than deliberating for a while over the binding fabric, this was a quick, fun project! I think we'll enjoy this new addition to our walls. Happy Friday!


  1. I think you made the right choice using a white binding. It really allows the letters to stand out and be center stage.

  2. Yes... you definitely chose the right colour, and I like your quilting as well. :-)

  3. "love" this fun wallhanging! Hope you'll stop by and share it at my Tuesday Archives Linky party this Tuesday, our theme is hearts and Love (valentines!!) Val from

  4. The white binding and quilting were good choices, I think. They keep the attention on the colorful letters. I also quilt while watching Call the Midwife! Such a great show. :)
