    Good morning,

    In my guild, each person is required to make at least 2 heart blocks. If a member gets sick, we rally and put some of the blocks into a quilt for them to hopefully speed up their recovery. Here are some I made.

    I love your hearts. May I borrow a couple of ideas from your middle group of hearts. I started a heart BOM last year that has to be finished. I think the kite would be a great block and the hot air heart balloons. Thanks for sharing.

    Please feel free to use the blocks.
    I do not have a patterns per se.

    But this is what I did:

    Start playing your favorite music.
    Cut strips of fabric you like
    Sewed them together to make a new fabric.
    Cut out hearts of different sizes, then play. :lol:

    I swear, it works.


    Thanks for the kind words.
