    Not a block I would do for an entire quilt!

    A friend in UK won a lottery block of her choice and she chose this Patchy Heart Block from Quilterscache.com I don't mind making 1 or 2 of these but really would not want to make LOTS of these blocks for a quilt, not my 'cup of tea', had to use 21 different color fabrics and a cream background, mostly Thimbleberries fabrics. I like fast and easy, LOL.

    It really is pretty but does seem like a lot of work. Wondering if using a package of 5" Charm squares would work and then just cut the size of the squares needed for this block?

    I love the block. It doesn't look too complicated. I would machine piece it and cut down on time involved. It would make a beautiful quilt.

    Seems like a wonderful block to use up scraps. Make a beautiful scrappy quilt.

    It made into a pretty block but I can understand how you feel. I like things faster as well.

    There might be a faster easier way to make this but don't think so. It calls for 17 different 2" fabric sqs, and 4 different 3.75" qtr sq triangles. http://www.quilterscache.com/P/PatchyHeartBlock.html

    Now I'm thinking that since this uses such small pieces of fabric/scraps, I might just sew some together now and then put them in a box until a bunch stack up and then finish off some more heart blocks. I do like the block

    Thinking too that 2-4 long 2" strips sewn together of different fabrics and then cut into 4 patches would work up fast. Hmmmm , might try that too.

    Love the fabrics and color choices. I would make a whole quilt out of those.

    But it's so PRETTTYYYYYYYY! Wow, look at your perfect seams/points! I aspire to be so good.

    The # of squares wouldn't deter me so much as the 'heart' shape. I have this THING about heart shaped anything...too sappy. But I really do like your rendering.

    The pattern would be great for a scrappy quilt.

    I made nine of these to add to the bottom of a scrappy that I want to be longer. They do take time but I already had the 2" sqs and was using the leader and ender method from Bonnie Hunter. I have not added the strips all around yet as I need to fit it to the size I need. Had to stop and sew something else for awhile. I'll be posting when I finish because Im doing a UFO each month. But this one will not be February's.

    Oh I really like this. I think it would work with any size squares, even 1.5" and 2.5" that I seem to be addicted to.

    Very pretty. I am sewing squares together also and it is pretty boring. Already had them cut from years ago. I prefer the strip method. Much more accurate and easier matching.
