Valentine’s Day seems like a good time to enjoy some heart quilts, doesn’t it? Each quilt is linked to where it appears online.
This has to be one of the best heart quilt designs ever! It’s by Amy Ellis and was posted on Diary of a Quilter as part of the Sew Red for Women campaign. The Sew Red for Women initiative was to raise awareness of heart disease by way of creativity and camaraderie within the modern sewing community. This design is ingenious: just half-square triangles and squares, but it looks complex.
Hearts Afloat was the cover quilt for the Jan/Feb ’12 issue of Quiltmaker. The red and aqua combination is very pleasing and those scalloped edges are to die for. It was designed by Bev Getschel.
How about this heart quilting? It’s called Heart Flow and it was part of The Machine Quilting Project by Leah Day. You’ll find this and hundreds more quilting designs all free of charge on Leah’s website.
And here’s another keeper, also by Amy Ellis for Sew Red for Women. What a great block!
I improvised this heart block last week but I like the way it turned out, so I think there are more of these in my future.
This is LOVE Squared by Julie Comstock for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 6. A fitting way to end a Valentine blog post, don’t you think? I hope you get to spend time with the people you love today.
