I have a new quilt pattern out today!
This PDF quilt pattern is called Heartfelt and it includes instructions for crib, lap, twin and queen sized quilts.
The crib size finishes at approximately 40″ x 58″.
The lap size finishes at approximately 60″ x 87″ (a very generous lap quilt – for those who like them big).
The twin size finishes at approximately 67″ x 90″.
The queen size finishes at approximately 95″ x 94″.
Heart quilts like Heartfelt aren’t just for Valentines Day. They make great baby gifts and wedding quilt gifts.
This pattern can be made to be on the sweet side – as you see here in Kona solids (Snow for the background and Cornflower, Astral, Chartreuse, Medium Pink and Bubble Gum for the hearts).
But it can also be less sweet and a little more sophisticated with a more limited palate, such as the two examples below.
The cover version shown is the lap size quilt. It was quilted with straight lines using my walking foot.
I also made a scrappy binding from the fabric left over from the hearts.
I usually prefer to hand stitch my bindings, but the kids go back to school tomorrow and I really wanted this done quickly.
The Heartfelt quilt is suitable for confident beginners. It’s not a hard pattern at all – the stripes are sewn in batches, after which the hearts are assembled.
I really love it when seams nest, so the pattern has all the pressing instructions to make sure that happens. Patterns just sew up so much quicker when the seams nest (mainly because it’s easier to get away with not pinning).
If you’d like to make your own Heartfelt quilt then come on over to the Pattern Shop and buy yourself a copy!
Have a wonderful week and happy sewing!
