๐Ÿฅฐ Day 7: Hearts a Plenty

One of my enduring favorite quilt patterns is too simple to be called a pattern! Begin with a fabulous FQ bundle (who is not surprised that I fell for Tula Pink’s Tabby Road collection? ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ)…from each fat quarter, cut 2 squares and 2 hearts…mix and match until you are satisfied, then fuse, piece and quilt.

My favorite way to cut hearts (remember to MistyFuse first) is to cut square, fold in half, and free-cut one side of a heart. If they each turn out a bit different, all the better! To review:

Or…depending upon the fabrics…you may want to fuse the hearts to alternating squares as I did in this quilt (using Uppercase Volume 1 fabrics ๐Ÿ’•) for a VERY special baby ๐Ÿ’œ:

A heart-themed quilt should feel like a warm hug, so for these quilts I tend to use wool batting and quilt very lightly.

Have a warm and cozy Saturday with your sweetheart!
