My husband is a little anti-Valentines Day, and I on the other hand am allllll over it. I’ll take any reason to sprinkle red and pink hearts around my house and buy bags of juju cherry heart candies. I thought about making this little mini last year when I wrote my tutorial for making heart blocks in multiple sizes. Wouldn’t it be fun if the sizes overlapped a bit and made a cute mini quilt to hang or gift? Yes…yes it would. Too many hours later I wrote up a pattern, and now I’m finally sharing it with you! It would also make a darling pillow.

I Heart You Mini Quilt Pattern
If I made this again I would use more contrasting fabrics…or all solids maybe? The aqua print heart disappears into the larger heart…so keep that in mind when choosing fabrics.
That empty white space in the upper right was begging for some embroidery or fun quilting. I almost embroidered “love” in the corner…then thought adding a heart in the quilting might be even better. I traced a heart cookie cutter onto the fabric with a disappearing ink pen, then went over it twice with my sewing machine to trace the heart outline. Then I quilted it normally, starting and stopping once I got to the edges of the heart. I love how it turned out, and how it looks from a distance!
I hope you enjoy this little mini quilt pattern, and if you make one I’d love to see it! Or tag me on instagram @cluckclucksew
Happy really really really early Valentines Day!

Love your mini Heart Quilt – thank you for sharing. Love the aqua one in between, wouldn’t change a thing. It’s beautiful! I think I’ll make mine into a pillow.
This is just the cutest thing ever!!! Thanks for taking the time to write up the pattern and sharing with us! I love everything about it!!:)
I actually LIKE how the turquoise heart breaks up the predictability of the four hearts. This is very cute !
So adorable and I love the blue heart!! Thanks for sharing with us.
I love it! I’m planning to make my baby girl a heart quilt (using your pattern and info of course) when I have time. I think I’ll have to make her a pillow now too!
This is adorable! I’m in the middle of making a quilt with your heart block tutorial, now I need to make this to go with it :D
Thanks for sharing the adorable pattern. I can’t wait to make it!!

Absolutely adorable! So sweet and generous of you to share the pattern. Thank you!
Thank you! Adorable. I have downloaded the pattern and may try to make this with my daughter over the weekend as Valentine placemats for her to give as a gift to her BFF.
Thank you for the pattern
It’s sew sweet. It’s the weekend here in Australia and I’ll be whipping this up tonite. Thankyou for the freebie.
How pretty!!! I can’t wait to move out into a new home so I can actually have a place for my sewing machine so I can make pretty projects like this! Love the hearts! =)
Love love LOVE. :)
Question? Which came first the quilted heart or the diagonal quilting? Where the quilted diagonal lines meet the quilted heart do you stop at the heart and start again or travel to the next line? Thanks.
This is the MOST ADORABLE patterns I’ve seen in a long time! Thank you, Allison! I am loving making the mini’s from your booklet. If you make another mini booklet of your quilts I will definitely buy it! :-)
This is great! I think I might give this one a try. I don’t have many holiday-themed items for the house. And I’ll join you with eating the juju hearts.
oooweee ! Thank-you so much
thanks for the fab pattern–I love hearts and I totally love this..I love how the one heart kind of blends in too..great design idea….
Glad you all like it! Fran – I did the heart outline first, then started and stopped each time I reached the heart, and skipped over the heart. Hopefully that makes sense!
Thank you – this is a really lovely pattern….
So sweet! I love hearts!! Cute little Valentines quilt – it’s like each heart represents a family member :)
I love this piece! And I love your machine quilting!! May I ask…your machine quilting really “pops.” What stitch length do you use? And what kind/size of thread? Many thanks for your inspiration.
Middle Age Mom (love your name by the way!) I used a plain old 2.4 stitch length on all of it…usually I lengthen my stitches to 3 or so when I’m straight line quilting but I didn’t on this one. I also just use the same old cotton 50 wt. aurifil thread that I use for piecing! So nothing special done there but I’m glad it pops! :)
I love this pattern. I also love the idea of having a valentine decoration that lays flat for the rest of the year. I’m glad you had the break from quilting so that you love it again. The quilting community would truly miss your great talents. I have missed your blogs. I am so happy you get to have a beautiful, healthy baby!
This is so adorable. Thank you so much!
Thank you for this lovely pattern. Guida

Wow, that’s so cute ! But why did you make rectangles inside (apart the frame) ? They broke your pattern.
Thank you for sharing you darling design it’s my favorite heart pattern. I think I will extend the graduated hearts on both sides and make a table runner.
