Default Need help with a pattern

Finally got some info from my daughter on what quilt she would like. If I don't start soon I will never finish by Christmas. I have 2 daughters. So she sends me this picture and asks if I can make it. Any suggestions of how or where to find a pattern???

I don't see your pattern, but here is a simple version. http://www.quiltingassistant.com/valentineheart.html

It looks like the hearts are made from circles cut in half attached to a multi-cut disappearing 4 patch and appliquéd to a background square, alternating with solid background squares, all set on point.
The quilting on your picture is awesome too.

If you are familiar with piecing and applique, it's a pretty easy pattern to figure out using graph paper. If you make the pieced four-square center 1"-square finished pieces, then the next row consists of 1"x2" finished rectangles alternating with 2" squares. The outer row is similar.

For the two arc pieces, you can either hand draw or use a protractor (or cup, small saucer) to draw the curved pieces.

Judging from the sample, the original quilter felt fine with cutting down her pieced squares to fit as needed.

It looks to me as if the hearts may have been reverse-appliqued to the white block backgrounds.

The finished heart blocks were alternated with plain background squares in an on-point setting.

I've done this block, but it was woven, then appliqued.

It looks like the woven Scandinavian Baskets. If you want to do it as a pieced block, there's no reason you couldn't map out the pattern.

the rounded heart tops looks like one that Eleanor Burns does.
