Vary the Color of the Hearts for Your Own Creative Quilt!
A clever arrangement of square patches and half-square triangles creates hearts across the surface of this pretty quilt. The hearts are set off to perfection by colorful patches in the background and in the border.
Deep blue stands out nicely against the rest of the quilt in this version. However, another color will be just as lovely. Just make the contrasting hearts and inner border darker than the rest so the hearts predominate.
Beginning quilters will love how easy this quilt is to make, and experienced quilters will enjoy how quickly it goes together. You can speed construction even further by making 8 half-square triangles at a time (instructions are here).
The finished quilt, from designer Judith Sandstrom, is 40″ x 56″. You can easily add more blocks for a larger quilt.

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!
