Sew a 28 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ rectangle to the top and bottom of the arrow unit.

Use the block diagram above to complete the block.

Embroider the shaft of the arrow.

Heart Block Assembly

Using the block diagram above, piece together the following strips:

  • (2) 6 1/2″ x 28 1/2″ white strips
  • (2 ) 4 1/2″ x 28 1/2″ light pink strips
  • (3) 4 1/2″ x 28 1/2″ white strips
  • (2) 2 1/2″ x 28 1/2″ light pink strips.

This unit is the background for the heart block.

Assemble the heart diagram from the pattern. 

Iron fusible interfacing to the back side of the 36 1/2″ x 28 1/2″ dark teal rectangle.

Trace the heart opening onto the front side of the rectangle.

Carefully cut the heart away.

Iron the dark teal fabric over the striped background.

Stitch along the edge of the heart to secure.

 

Quilt Assembly

Using the quilt diagram above, sew the blocks together.

Quilt as desired,

Bind.

 

Note: This quilt would make an adorable baby quilt. Instead of creating a stripe background behind the heart, use solid fabric and embroider the baby’s name and birth date.

I would like to rug hook this pattern. Is there any problem with this if I should display it at a gallery? I like to hook (rug and punch) hearts and this is super lovely.
