New Baby Gift: Patchwork Heart Mat

I created this quilt for my friends’ new baby daughter. When I heard she had arrived, my first thought was to sew a quilt but having never done that before I thought I should start small. I found out how to create a heart from squares and triangles and put that in pink in the centre. I chose to outline the heart in green and use blues and purples as the rows to turn the blanket from a square to a rectangle.

To finish, I created a sandwich with some batting and some soft purple cotton, and quilted the heart with diagonal lines:
