UPDATE: Hearts Desire(d) Wedding Quilt

As of the time of this picture, 39 blocks have been kindly made and contributed to the wedding quilt for Sparkle Jane and her young man. The excitement is building. Thank you to each of you who have shared your love and talents.

https://weddingdressblue.wordpress.com/2021/01/30/hearts-desired-a-wedding-quilt-for-sparkle-jane/I am so touched to see the project come together. You can look HERE for more information.

No, it is not too late to send blocks. I am hoping to have all the blocks together by about April 1, 2021 and then to start on assembly. I will keep you posted as things develop.

I desperately needed a new project to lift my spirits.  Baby quilts are just the thing!

I call it Baby Mine.

Nine simple blocks finish as a 34-1/2″ quilt top.

And I feel much better now.

Hopefully this will help me refuel to return to the Halfway quilt and keep squaring up the HSTs.  Only about 400 to go.  No, I’m not kidding.

 

ps–The idea came from a picture that didn’t link to anything, but a little research showed me that it exists as a block pattern in a few different places.  If you like it, try HERE:   https://www.quiltingcompany.com/wp-content/uploads/pdf/Nine-Patch_Heart_Block.pdf  or HERE: http://www.quiltingassistant.com/valentineheart.html
