Hello! The other day I mentioned I was thinking of making a heart themed quilt. So I took a little time to play around with a few different designs to see if any of them really caught my interest…
The first three blocks (pictured above) all finish at 6″ x 6″. I really love the
patchwork version; however, it would definitely take quite a bit longer to make an entire quilt using that style block even if I increased the size to 12″ finished. The bottom block is from Alisson’s terrific heart block tutorial which includes information for making several different size heart blocks.
I’m kind of leaning toward the style of blocks pictured below, though. I like how the tops and sides will appear more rounded in the finished quilt (the pattern for these is found in my row quilt pattern My Favorite Things). They are just a bit wider than they are tall.
And then there is the question of whether I want to make the quilt in reds and pinks…or make it in soft florals so it can be used year round. Decisions, decisions…
Do you have a favorite heart-themed quilt or pattern?
Thanks so much for stopping by!
