After a few hours of piecing and quilting, my mini memory quilt is ready. I used the leftover of my memory quilt but with smaller squares. The first part of this project can be found here: Mini Memory Quilt Part 1.
Using parts of the same duvet as previously, this small quilt became very soft and fluffy. Using my regular sewing machine I sew some straight lines close to the edges so everything stays together, then finished it up by manual quilting some hearts. The quilt is so thick, that I couldn't do the usual rockning motion of the needle, I had to go up and down and up and down... It was very slow. They are just freehand hearts, and I still need to add some.
Rewatched Jenny’s great video tutorial about binding. I used machine binding for the front side then hand binding for the back of the quilt.
Here you can see my two memory quilts together:
My daughter was very happy with this quilt and started playing with it right away. The background is my Memory quilt.
I still have a few small squares left, one day I will use them. But not today. Probably not this year...
