    Saw this in a dream and now I really want to make it...

    Hi everyone, I saw thos is a dream, but i can't remember what the sides were. I think thatthey were more red squares and triangles, but I need help filling in the blank space. It was a quilt in the shape of a heart, heres the drawing:

    I can't help you - just want to say I am glad to know I am not the only one who dreams about quilt patterns!

    And here I thought I was the only one saturated in quilts so much that i dream up more UFOs for myself! Surround the hearts with white or pink. Black would be dramatic too but a little less romantic.

    What should the measurements be though? I cut out three different five inch squares for the three big ones at the top... should the gold ribbon be two or three inches wide, by how many inches long? I'm really bad at figuring stuff out like this..

    the top in fabric

    This is the first few blocks of the top they're not sewn yet. Sorry the picture is blurry, I take all of my pictures with my cell phone.

    I keep a pencil and paper on my night stand so I can jot down ideas. Otherwise I'd never get any sleep worrying about whether I'd remember the idea in the morning. Glad there are others.

    There is a pattern in one of the Twister books for a heart to do. I would think you could start with that and enlarge or whatever.

    I love heart patterns. Here is another idea from Bonnie Hunter for scrappy hearts:

    Seems like I saw a paper pieced one like that in some book. It will be neat once you dream the rest of it...

    Yes, thank goodness we are not alone. In my dream I'm lost in the college dorm and the stairs lead up to another floor but only from one side of the dorm and I never start out on the right side. the heart quilt looks like it would be a nice challenge.

    Use graft paper. You can buy it in larger blocks than what we used in HS geometry. You can draw on it with a pencil, then use colored pencils to fill in blocks. This is for those of us who do not have the Electric Quilt 6 software!

    I can't help you with the pattern but just wanted to say your dream was better than mine. LOL. i've been rearranging and making room for another machine in my sewing room. Have some boxes I've moved a couple times and nothing seems to work. I dreamed about moving those boxes again - but I think the way I dreamed might work. Gonna try it and see. hope someone can help with your block pattern.

    I would use a white with tiny red print (hearts?), or leave white (white on white?) and use red to quilt.

    Neat idea!

    That is too cool that you dream quilts., I do too. I have dreamed "paisley" since I was a little girl. Hmm... premonitions of things to come. I come up with color combos etc. from my dreams. I think you are on the right track with your heart. Just kind of go with the flow and be sure to write down what works, in case you want to make another one, or share....hint..hint.
