Heartsy Quilt Pattern and a Free Block

Heartsy Quilt Pattern

I couldn’t let the beginning of 2022 slip by without making one of my favorite things to sew…a new heart quilt! 

So many people have asked me how to make a version of Brightly or Pumpkin Patches with hearts…so I worked on making this Heartsy quilt. 

It’s hands down the cutest quilt I’ve made in 2022.  ;) 

Heartly Quilt Pattern

If you already own Brightly or Pumpkin Patches, I wrote out free instructions to make the heart block that you can substitute for the stars and pumpkins in those patterns.  Click below or here for the free block pattern!

If you don’t already own one of those patterns, or you prefer full instructions just for this quilt, I wrote out a full pattern for Heartsy you can find here or at the link below.

This block would even make a cute quilt on it’s own! 

I chose the colors in this quilt out of that tiny 30’s floral print, mostly using near solids because it’s all I had on hand.  The blocks sew up fast using Diagonal Seam Tape (here’s a video of me using it to make a heart block).

Wouldn’t this be a cute memory quilt made with a pieces of clothing or special fabrics?  Or a signature quilt where people can sign their names in the larger squares.   Lots of possibilities with this one!

I quilted this one myself, and it had been awhile since I’d done free motion quilting on a large quilt like this.  My shoulders were sore!   There are a few wonky spots in the middle when smooshing the big quilt through my machine got a little tricky.

The full Heartsy pattern can be found here as a PDF, or here as Paper pattern (paper patterns will ship on the 21st).  It’s on sale until Valentines Day! 

The free Heartsy heart block pattern if you don’t need the full pattern, can be found here

If you just want a heart block in multiple sizes, I have a free pattern for that here, or a simple heart quilt tutorial here  (I told you I love making heart quilts!).

I’ll round up the links to my favorite heart projects in another post.  It’s the one block I’ve definitely made and posted more than any other!

A Christmas Jelly Weave Quilt

Jelly Weave pattern, jelly roll friendly

In the nick of time I finished up this quilt today!  It was my slow going December project, and today I sewed on the binding just in time to enjoy it for Christmas.

This is my Jelly Weave pattern, and to make it 2 colors, you just divide the strips needed in two colors, and use each color in each block.  I put more details and photos of how to make this pattern 2 colors in this post of my black and grey version

I cut the fabric strips from my red and green stash.  The only one I would have left out is that really lime-bright green fabric…but I picked out the colors at night and it blended much better in the dark!   I also didn’t realize until the whole quilt was sewn, that I had used different colors of background white fabrics.  Whoops!

I took barely any photos of this quilt in construction like I usually do.  The downside of sewing late at night when the kids go to bed, is that I can’t snap photos (or at least good ones!).

I did super simple straight stitch quilting 1/4″ from the seams inside the blocks in both directions.  The backing is an aqua snowman flannel…the same one I used in the tree quilt from my last post.

This was a fun festive sew, and despite December being a crazy month and flying by in a blink, I enjoyed having a project at my machine to work on here and there.  Plus I used up a ton of my red and green fabrics…and scraps of background whites that I now know don’t match.  :)
