Thank you so much JENNR8R for these 2 patterns. It's very generous of you to share both. I love scrappy quilts!

I love the motif of hearts and have tons of 2 1/2" blocks so I think this pattern is calling my name. Thank you so much for sharing your pattern.

28 - 2.5" squares in different fabrics
4 - 3.0" squares in different fabrics
4 - 3.0" squares of background fabric
1 - 4.5" square of background fabric

Draw a grid on foamcore board as shown and use for placement of the fabrics... Pictures 1 and 2

Make four half-square triangles using a 3.0" square of a scrap fabric and a 3.0" square of background fabric. Picture 3 shows the method I used. This will give you two identical half-square triangles that are 2.5" unfinished. I make sure that those two identical half-square triangles are put into two different blocks so there will be no repeat fabrics in the block.

Sew the 2.5" squares together in rows, then sew the rows together as shown on the placement board. TIP: Take a cellphone photo of your layout before you start to sew. Refer to the photo when sewing the squares together in case they get out of order.

The unfinished block should measure 12.5"

I hope you enjoy this block and will post a picture of a quilt that you make using these directions. I'm currently working on another quilt with a different layout that uses four of these blocks. I'll post a picture when I finish it.
Hi JENNR8R,
love your heart quilt that I did one for sister. She loved it. She had posted the picture on social media that I had to surprise her with one.

What an honor that you made a quilt using my block for your sister. That makes me so happy. I'd love to see a picture of the quilt you made. Could you post it here?

Also, you may absolutely share on your blog. Please send me a private message with a link to the blog so I can see it.

I can't figure out how to make a link to take you directly to the instructions. Do a search for:

Including Images and Attachments (as of 24 Jan 2020)

in the top right hand corner where it says Search Forums
