In the middle of my menagerie of UFOs, I got sidetracked.  *hangs head in shame*  But I saw this cute little quilt on Pinterest and instantly fell in love.  The snippet description with the picture indicates this was from a book by Karen Costello Soltys called "Bits and Pieces."  I don't know how accurate that information is, as we all know Pinterest allows people to pin whatever descriptions they want when they re-pin pictures.  But I did want to give credit to the designer, just in case it is accurate.

Here is the picture as posted on Pinterest:

And, here is my interpretation.  It still needs to be quilted.  I absolutely adore it, and for that reason, am naming it "J'Adore."  It does look kinda French to me -- I guess it should...with the exception of the polka-dotted background, I did use French General fabrics.  *grin*

I also was able to use the "Queen of Hearts" Accuquilt Die (55325) to cut all the hearts.  What a time-saver!  This cute little quilt top went together very quickly!  And, since I used charm squares to cut the hearts, I was able to cut smaller hearts from the scraps using the same Die for a future project...

Cuteness overload,

Your little heart quilt is lovely. Such pretty colors. Those hearts are a very nice shape. I don't have a cutter myself but yours did a nice job.
