    At first, I didn't understand what you mean. But now that I see the other picture, I get it. Instead of "turning" the blocks, you just place them differently in the layout. I guess I needed the visual! :D

    I did have to place some of the hearts upside down in the nine patch, because I made my quilt 5 blocks by 5 blocks. I wanted all of the hearts to go in the same direction. The blocks in the fifth roll going up and down and the last roll across the bottom had to be planned. If I had made it 4 blocks by 4 blocks or 8 blocks by 8 blocks, then it would not have been necessary to turn any of the hearts upside down.

    Thank you for the links and pattern directions. I have to make 3 baby quilts and this is a great idea for one of them, maybe two!

    This is a good site to see no matching blocks. I thought the quilt would look odd, but it doesn't. Thanks.

    For some reason I missed the heart quilt above when I read this thread yesterday. It is so cute! I think I'll have to make one for my Secret Sister for Valentine's Day. And one for myself!
