Scrappy heart mini quilts

I started by drawing a heart and color divisions on a piece of muslin. I made sure it bled through to the back so I could see the shape when I was done.

Then I laid bits from my magic Tiny Scrap Bin. The more the merrier. I placed a sheet of dissolvable fabric over the top and machine stitched around about, over and out, and then stitched some more. When I wash the dissolvable fabric off, I make sure to rub a dub so the raw edges fray.

After it is dry, I place a dark color over the top and stitch the heart shape from the back. Then I cut out the inside of the heart from the top layer. Then add batting, a back and quilt as usual. They were about 8 inches square. Oh, I forgot that I added beads for sparkle.
