I just realized it’s less than a month until Valentine’s Day, and I haven’t written a post yet with my favorite thing to sew….heart blocks! I can’t let a January or February go by without some heart blocks on my blog.
I’ve probably made more heart projects than anything else. I posted a quick video to Instagram a few days ago of me making a heart block with Diagonal Seam Tape to speed up sewing all the corners….not having to draw all the lines really speeds up these blocks!

Amy has this cute 12″ heart-in-a-heart quilt blocks on her blog with a free printable…these would make a cute quilt all put together!

Since it’s Martin Luther King Jr. day and this post is filled with hearts, it’s fitting to end with one of his quotes I love:
“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?”
Spread some love today!
