Lovestruck Heart Block (free!) Pattern

I don’t think a year has gone by without me making some sort of heart quilt, so I definitely couldn’t let this year be the first.  

I knew I wouldn’t have time to make a whole quilt, but this cute twist on my original heart block pattern was a fun challenge…and actually pretty quick to sew!

With the top and bottom border it finishes at 17″ x 17″, and you could leave the borders off and it would be 10″ x 17″.  It would make a cute quilt with a handful together, or even a cute pillow cover.  Or you can quilt it up and hang it on your wall and call it your only Valentines Day decor like I did.

I already have so many heart projects in my tutorials and patterns.  The most used on my blog is of course the basic Heart Block Pattern, and there is also the Simple Heart Quilt below.

This I Heart You mini quilt is a perfect rainy day project.

And of course my Box of Hearts quilt that looks like a box of conversation hearts!

Tick Tocks and a Spring Table Runner

Tick Tock Quilt Pattern

January always feels like a good time to finish up my works in progress, and clear out the sewing space so I can have a fresh start for the year.  I can keep about 2 projects going at a time without feeling overwhelmed…so cleaning out the old projects and finishing things up is a must!  

I had a couple of cute Tick Tock quilts that I made as pattern testers when I was writing the pattern, so I finished them up to donate.

I used large scraps and bits and pieces from my stash for both of them.  This one has some sweet prints mixed in (strawberries, bunnies, ballerinas!).   The backing is from my Hazel fabric line (discontinued) and the binding is a stripe from Michael Miller I’ve had since 2012…I’m trying to use up what I have!!

If you want a very real representation of my life right now…just scroll down to see the other side of the cute dresser in the photo above.  

I just shoved all of my daughters random things to one side and snapped a photo of the “clean” side.  I’m getting better at working around our messes now that we are ALL home all of the time.  In every pretty clean picture there is usually a not-so-pretty pile just next to it!

This quilt was a tester and I sewed it together wrong!!  I flipped the blocks and didn’t even notice until I was completely finished making the top.  Luckily that’s why it was a tester…and it’s still such a cute baby quilt.

Isn’t that yellow chicken print cute up there?  It was a gift from a friend years ago, cut from a pair of (new) pajamas she bought and cut up! 

I backed this quilt with the plaid print from Hello Jane (discontinued but I found some here and here) that is perfect.    Both of these quilts I finished up with easy free motion.  Not perfect, but finished.

I can’t believe Spring is around the corner, but I’m ready for it!  The Spring issue of Quilts & More magazine came out this week and I have a spring table runner project in it.  Each issue this year will have a seasonal table runner pattern from me.

Pixel Chain Christmas Quilt…squeezing in one more finish!

Pixel Chain Christmas Quilt Pattern

We’ve been using last years Christmas quilt without a binding since Thanksgiving…who needs a binding anyway?  

It’s a super heavy quilt with a thick minky + batting, and it’s a twin size so it’s been laying over my side of the bed all month (I’m always freezing!).

Kaitlyn did a darling quilting design on this with trees.  It adds so much character to this simple quilt.

That is one of my favorite quilty-pictures from last year!!  The pattern is Pixel Chain, the fabric was a mix from my stash.
