Choose Your Favorite Color Combo and Make It Yours!
Beautiful blue-violets and turquoise combine for a wonderful quilt. Notice how the striped fabric pulls the colors together while adding interest to the design. The quilt is simple to make and will be charming in many color themes.
It was made using a “planned” string piecing method. While you may have seen string-pieced quilts made from scrap strips of various widths (see examples here), the consistency of the strip widths gives this quilt its eye-catching design.
Strips of specified widths are sewn to a thin fabric foundation. The resulting blocks are cut to size and combined to make the quilt top.
The finished quilt, from Mary Quilts, is 54″ × 72″.
You’ll want to review the “HeartStrings Block Guidelines” found here and adapt them as instructed in the link above to make this version.
Instructions for trimming the blocks can be found here.
The quilt shown here is a modification of the “HeartStrings Quilt Project – Red Centers” pattern, by Mary Johnson for HeartStrings Quilt Project, found here.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources.
