Sweet Talk quilt + pattern

Here’s my latest finish!  I finally decided what to do with this fat quarter stack of Noteworthy:

Sweet Talk quilt pattern

The fat quarters were sliced and diced into some (okay a lot of) half square triangles.  I added the large heart in the bottom corner as a homage to a certain upcoming holiday.  The heart in the top left corner was added because I was missing just ONE dang HST.  Not worth buying more fabric for.  So I used scraps and appliqued the pink heart onto a white square.  I think it adds just a wee bit o’ charm.

For the quilting I tried a new-to-me pattern – large loops combined with gentle waves.  I like the softness of it!  You can sort of see it in the photo above, and better in the next two photos:

The binding is the pink stripe from the Noteworthy line.  It does a great job framing the quilt without being overpowering.

I’m calling this quilt “Sweet Talk” and the pattern is available here and here.  The pattern includes instructions for a throw size (50” x 60”) and a twin size (71” x 88”)
