I’ve made a few Valentine-y quilts over the years (2013 (maybe my favorite?), 2014 with baby Hazel!, 2017 in a snowstorm…), and while I hadn’t had one in mind for this year, suddenly the other day I got the urge to make one. I love Allison’s heart block pattern, and thought it’d be fun to make up larger heart blocks to show off all my favorite Liberty of London prints.
I found this black and white polka dot fabric in my stash, which I’ve used, and loved!, for background before (it’s by Bonnie Christine, from her Hello Bear line). I knew I’d be cutting it close, and indeed, I soon discovered that I did not have enough background fabric to finish this one in time for today. Never fear though, I ordered a bit more from Hawthorne Threads, and hopefully should soon have this one finished!
I have a feeling it may be snapped up by one little girl who loves hearts and quilts!
