So sorry it has taken so long to post the second block, things just didn’t go the way they were planned but that’s now behind us. Here is the second block. I believe I sent a link to a pattern called Heart Quilt Pieced Pattern earlier. I made the block and found it to be very easy, but here are my instructions. Unbelievable how fast it is to do and a lot of fun. If you looked at the pattern on the website, it looked as though they were doing just one color and then the WOW. Well, just for fun, I went ahead and did the top part of the heart in a contrasting color and the bottom part in a matching fabric. You can do it either way. You will need 4 blocks.
Here is the unfinished block:
These are the fabrics that I chose, but you can do it either one color or 2 different colors. Be creative. With the exception of a few pieces of yardage (I have limited Valentine fabric) I used mostly just scraps.
Here are the measurements that you will need: This is if you are using 2 different reds or prints. Otherwise, skip the second fabric and use.
Fabric 1 Red or Print: You will need 2.5 x 4.5 rectangles. (2)
Fabric 2 Red or Print: You will need 6.5 x 8.5 inches rectangle. (1)
White or background fabric: You will need 2.5 squares. (4) And 4.5 inch squares (2)
Border: You will need coordinating strips of 1.5 inches in lenght cut at 8.5 inches and 9.5 inches. (Two each). Not in picture.
With the four 2.5 inch WOW pieces, and the 2 Red #1 pieces, make 2 flying geese units:
Now sew them together to make the top part of the heart:
Then trim off the excess. Sew the top to the bottom and you have your heart!
If you’re doing the border as you go along, then add to all sides, 8.5 x 1.2 inch for the bottom and 9.5 x 1.5 inch for the sides and you’re done.
Very simple and pretty! Have fun! Watch for the next block on Sunday, February 6.
Thank you for following along!
