Awesome! I can't wait to see a picture of your finished quilt.

The quilt you made using these blocks is adorable. Thanks for the tutorial on making the block.

I love the Valentine Candy quilt. Our small quilting group want to each make a quilt, throw, or wall hanging using this pattern. Do you happen to have written instructions/directions on how you set the quilt up. Did you put the sashing on each individual block? Or did you put them together in rows? What size are the triangles? And the corners? How did you set up the mini dresdens? Thank you so much for sharing your talents. Looking forward to hearing from you.

I'm honored that your group would like to make a quilt like mine. Unfortunately, I made up the pattern as I went along, and I don't remember everything that I did. The quilt has been gifted so I don't have it to take measurements.

The attached picture might help you see how I put the heart blocks together. I used instructions from "Jan in VA" for making the setting triangles. I made a copy of her instructions years ago and can't find where she posted that. Maybe she will give you her instructions if you write to her. Here is a link to her profile: https://www.quiltingboard.com/member...va-u20174.html

I don't understand your question about the mini dresdens. Did you see SheriR's tutorial on how they are made? Maybe that will answer your question. Here is the link: https://www.quiltingboard.com/tutori...g-t300467.html

I hope some of this has been helpful. I'd love to see a picture of your quilts when they are finished.

Thank you Jenn for getting back to me. The question about the mini dresden was the same - how to set them up. This picture does help with setting up the hearts. And I think that we can figure out the borders. Thanks for the link for the triangles. I will certainly take pictures and send them to you. Thanks again for your reply
