This is my version of the Simple Hearts Quilt made by Allison Harris from Cluck Cluck Sew. Links to download Allison's block pattern as well as her tutorial on the Simple Hearts quilt can be found at the end of this post.
My version is made from forty two 8" finished heart blocks. There are 6 blocks across and 7 blocks down and the quilt finishes about 66" x 78".
I used fat quarters from a single collection, however scraps can also be used. Two fat quarters will make 4 heart blocks. You will need 21 fat quarters. Instead of using the same fabric for the heart background, the sashing and border, I used a different fabric for the heart background.
For sashing and border you will need 3 yards. Cut the following:
- Cut 3 strips @ 8.5" x WOF.
- Sub cut into 42 @ 2.5" 8.5" for horizontal sash.
Make the following cuts:
- Trim off the selvage
- Cut 5 @ 2.5" x LOF for vertical sash
- Cut 4 @ 4.5" x LOF for borders
- Cut 4 @ 2.5" x LOF for binding.
Cut each fat quarter according to the diagram below.
