Heart quilts to inspire you

Since today is Valentine’s Day, I thought I would share my collection of heart quilts with you. When I was getting ready to decorate my house for the month of February, I found that I have quite the collection of heart quilts. There’s no such thing as too many if you ask me!

Not only do I have lots of heart quilts, but I have many other projects that include fabric and hearts. Those will be sprinkled in throughout today’s blog post as well. These heart projects are especially fun because they are small and quick to make.

Heart quilts designed by me

I’m a huge fan of hearts, so it’s no surprise that I’ve made a few tutorials that feature them as well as one full-size pattern. The first heart tutorial I made was a LOVE Letters Mini quilt that featured easy applique letters and jumbo ric rak trim. It measures 12″ square and makes a nice wall hanging.

I made this Woven Hearts Table Runner using my quilt block tutorial, Woven Hearts. These look just like the Scandinavian hearts that I so admire. The runner contains four blocks set on point and a small border.

Using the same Woven Heart quilt block tutorial, I made a small quilt with charm squares. This turned out to be a great charm pack project (this is an older fabric line from Sweetwater).

I made this Nordic Mini quilt for Christmas, but it also works well for Valentine’s Day. It has a row of hearts and it’s red and white, so there you go! This was a free quilt along that I did in 2014. Wow, 10 years ago!

My most recent heart quilt is the table runner I made using my Vintage Heart Quilt Block tutorial. I made four 12″ blocks and sewed them together. After adding a 1 1/2″ border, it measures 15″ x 51″. I used a charm pack and mini charm pack for this one – both by Bunny Hill Designs for Moda Fabrics. I love it so much!

Ombre hearts

I have numerous quilt projects using my Ombre Heart quilt block tutorial. I’ve made a single quilt block, small coasters and a full quilt pattern with this design.

Below is the original quilt block. It measures 6″ square without the borders. It’s a wonderful way to use small scraps and play with color.

Next up are these Ombre Heart Coasters. They’re basically a smaller version of the quilt block and perfect to make as gifts.

My biggest quilt with hearts is my Ombre Love Quilt (available in my Etsy Shop). I designed this pattern to work with layer cakes (10″ squares) and it measures 63″ x 78″. The cover quilt was made with Chestnut Street by Fig Tree & Co. for Moda Fabrics.

I made another version with a layer cake of Olive’s Flower Market by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics. I left out the sashing and I stitched the hearts together into rows, instead of off-setting them. This made the quilt slightly smaller at 54″ x 69″. The blocks are the same, 9″ square.

Heart quilts designed by others

I fell in love with this free Simple Heart Quilt pattern from Allison at Cluck Cluck Sew. This quilt is also charm pack friendly and it’s super fun to make. It would make a great baby quilt.

My first paper piecing project was from the book Show Me How to Paper Piece by Carol Doak. It’s a great introduction to paper piecing (which I still have yet to master), and the quilt is really cute.

Heart project tutorials (not quilts)

My Hearts & Burlap Canvas tutorial is a great no-sew project that you can make with the kids. Half the fun is digging through your scraps to find the perfect heart fabric!

I love bringing out these Quilted Hearts for Christmas and Valentine’s Day! They could be made into an ornament, a sachet, or just group them together in a basket for a nice table accent.

Who wouldn’t love a Heart Bookmark to keep their place in their favorite book? This is another no-sew project that is quick and easy!

These Fabric Heart Bookmarks are unique and clever. This tutorial has a downloadable pdf and a video so you can see the process in action.

These Fabric Heart Bookmarks are super easy to make!

No matter the size, I hope you’re feeling my love and appreciation of heart quilts, and I hope your Valentine’s Day is filled with both!
