Valentine's Day mini quilt

I finished the cross stitch my grandma started, and I turned it into a little mini quilt. The finished size is just over 13" square. All the fabric is from my stash - a batik, a couple Kona cottons and some prints. I quilted this with concentric squares, the lines 1/4 to 1/2 inch apart. The hand quilting, a first for me, was done with DMC embroidery thread in some of the wider gaps between lines of machine quilting. The bias binding was just 2" wide - the skinniest I've used yet - and I'm pleased with the way it frames the quilt.
