Just in time for Valentine’s Day (and well, you know me, I love hearts at ALL time of the year!!) I have designed and created a new quilt pattern called Hearty Patches!
This pattern makes great use of a whole layer cake (42 10″ squares) – check out our in stock Layer Cakes to get started on the pattern now! Or if you are in the US, check out the Layer Cakes available at the Fat Quarter Shop
I used Shoreline by Camille Roskelley for the cover version of the Hearty Patches pattern.
And I used Vintage by Sweetwater to make a second version. Changing up the fabric made the pattern look quite different!
And there were a few bits left over from the layer cake, so I made a cushion as well! I had hoped to have the cushion pattern available for you, but that will have to wait for another day.
I do love using up every little skerrick of our much loved fabrics!
The Hearty Patches quilt is a beginner pattern with some basic shapes and some good skill building techniques to learn such as stitch and flip corners and nesting of seams.
Oh, and the best thing? For a more seasoned quilter, this quilt top can be done in a day! If you are a confident machine quilter and binder, then the entire quilt could be done in a weekend. A perfect last minute gift for a friend or teacher’s gift!
The quilt finishes at 54” x 63” and if you wanted it to be a little larger, you could easily add a border in a coordinating print from the same collection!
