A Year of Hearts


Join us for A Year Of Hearts in 2024!

Spread the joy and love of quilting with a block each month – all with a heart theme.

The blocks are a mixture of pieced blocks and applique blocks, with an occasional bit of foundation paper piecing.

One 12.5″ block (unfinished, will be 12″ once sewn into a quilt) each month and near the end of the year there will be a layout design released too.

We would love you to join us in sewing up a year of hearts!

How A Year Of Hearts Will Work

On the 1st of each month the block will be released for free for the first few days of the month only for my newsletter subscribers.

Then, the block will then only be available for purchase for a small fee as a PDF download.

You can sign up now for my Newsletter HERE.

I send out two newsletters a month for people who live OUTSIDE of Australia/New Zealand. These newsletters have tutorials, makes and sewalong information.

Aussies and Kiwis get the above newsletters as well as additional newsletter in the alternate weeks with all the fabric and notion news from my online shop.

Watch the introduction video to find out more!

Connecting With Others and Keeping Up to Date

This is a very relaxed and fun sewalong that goes for the whole year – you can post your blocks and progress on Instagram using the hashtag : #ayearofhearts and tag me @said_with_love

Or we would love you to join our Facebook Sewalong and Quilting Group so you can share your blocks and progress there! Please do not forget to answer all THREE of the membership questions – this is how we keep out the spammers.

You can follow me on Instagram @said_with_love and on Facebook Said With Love

The first newsletter of each month will have the link to the block pattern download for free. On the 8th of the month it will change to being a small fee.

Fabric Requirements

This is a perfect project to use up your scraps!

I am making mine from pinks, reds and using up my low volume stash for a scrappy background.

So there aren’t specifically any fabric requirements…..

However, if you don’t have a stash or are new to quilting I would suggest 10 fat quarters in a colour range of your choice (light pink, mid pink, dark pinks for example) with a contrast colour for your hearts of at least a FQ (maybe red or purple). If you want to use the same background throughout the quilt I would suggest 3 metres… however I would make sure it is a basic or solid that you can get more of if you run out!

Each block instruction will have the fabric requirements for that block only.

If you would like to use some of the same fabrics that I am using, or need a bit of a stash enhancement in the heart fabrics, browse through our gorgeous range of fabrics that will suit this sewalong. A Year Of Hearts fabric selection.
