We’re halfway through the first month of 2018 and that makes me so excited! I am ready for things to warm up around here. I’ve been fashioning an electric blanket when I’m downstairs on the computer.
One of my first projects in the new year was organizing my scraps and sewing room and it feels great. All of my scraps are in plastic containers according to hue and I’m ready to sew some fun creations. A week ago today, I sketched out a heart block and decided I needed to make a pattern and share it with the world. I love heart blocks and with Valentine’s Day a few weeks away I decided it was now or never. I finished the quilt top last night and it is ready to be quilted.
Crazy Love uses 2 1/2″ strips and half square triangles to make a 12″ heart block. Keeping the right value is key to the design. I used different hues to add interest. I think this quilt would look great in solids as well, however, those weren’t in my stash! LOL. My pattern includes a color page so you can create your own design, along with different quilt sizes.
Use #crazylovequilt on Instagram and share your creations! I’ll be sharing more pictures once mine is quilted. Have a good weekend and happy sewing.
My friends, I apologize…I was so excited to get this pattern out by Friday that I overlooked a couple things that I should bring to your attention. You may have already figured them out. If you haven’t started, please download the file again as they have been corrected as of 1/16/18.
- When cutting your Light/Medium strips, the last dimension is 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″
- On step one, you will also use fabric (C) to make Half Square Triangles.
