Hearts Roundup

Heart Blocks  with Tutorial

After seeing so many adorable heart quilts over the past couple of years I finally started my own this week.  I have so many random sized pieces of reds and pinks that I’m ready to use up…so a heart quilt was calling my name.  

Heart Quilt Block Tutorial

I’m making the 8″ finished blocks (tutorial here!).  I figure if I make a handful each day I’ll have enough to make a nice big throw size without sashing within a week or two.  

If you ever make these big hearts remember to use this tip here….and make an extra scrap HST you can use later!  

Scrap saving HST trick!!!

Since we still have a month until Valentines day, here’s a quick roundup of my past heart projects/tutorials!

    I’m making one now! I’m making 100 4.5″ hearts and then 2.5″ sashing. I think I bit off more than I can chew. Slow and steady. Instead of making a few hearts a day I’m doing them all together. So I just finished chain piecing all the 2.5 background squares onto the patterned rectangles. Next comes the 400 1″ squares!

      It’s a big project but it’s going to be AMAZING when you’re done!! Even if it’s next year! ;)

    All these valentine hearts are so yummy! Fun to see. I’m hoping to finish up a hearts and chevron quilt this month. I’ve been putting it off since August! The piecing is done, just have one more row of quilting. Thanks for sharing these hearts to remind me!

    Lots of hearts. Lovely. I am still thinking whether I should make a Valentine’s cushion or not! Leave it for next year!

    Love the multiple sizing chart. Definitely precut friendly and a stash buster project for those random bundle left-overs, too. Thanks!!

    When I saw your heart baby quilt last year, I **had** to have a pastel heart quilt, too! But since I wanted to *have* a heart quilt, and not *make* a heart quilt with all those pieced blocks, I raw-edge appliqued them onto a big piece of white Kona already spray basted to batting and backing, and I used the stitching around the edges to quilt the thing together. It turned out pretty cute for a shortcut quilt, haha! ;)

      That sounds darling! I love a good shortcut always.

    I love it all! Bless your little heart! :) hey tho’, question: you did the heart block tutorial, but didn’t make a quilt of hearts??? I thought you had done one?

    • Allison January 16, 2017 at 8:12 pm #

      No I didn’t….can you believe it? I made the heart baby quilt, then had so many people ask for the heart sizes that I made the tutorial for the heart blocks…but I never actually made a quilt! That all changes this week! ;)

    I made your Hourglass quilt for my sister’s baby, your Sweet’n’Sassy one for my own daughter born in August and now I’m working on this heart quilt for when she needs a bigger one. I’ve decided to make the hearts plain bubble-gum pink and floral around them. I’m also making a set of hotpads for my sister’s wedding using this heart block.
    love the blog!
