Valentine’s Day

20160206_005643746_iOS It is almost Valentine’s Day so I thought I would share a heart block pattern with you. It is from a quilt that I made for my eldest daughter back in 2005. She was six at the time and wanted a pink quilt.
It is made of pink fabrics from dresses and quilts when she was little. After two boys I went a bit overboard on the pink. She had it on her bed for years and now it is our favourite picnic quilt.It is a quite simple quilt with 8″ squares and with this block randomly in the quilt. It has a simple border with corner blocks that has a heart shape quilted on them.

Until next time Happy Sewing and take care!
