Heart Quilt Blocks Made by Kate

Our easy Heart quilt blocks finish at 6" square, and are assembled with a quick piecing technique that makes sewing a breeze. Each side of a heart block is pieced separately, and then the two mirror image sides are joined vertically to complete the block.

Make as many individual blocks as needed for a project, and take a look at page 3 for a quilt pattern that separates heart blocks with sashing and cornerstones.

Patchwork Hearts Fabrics

Choose two focal fabrics for each heart: two reds of similar value (similar in contrast) or two pinks of similar value. Choose a cream colored neutral fabric for the background. Tone-on-tones are a good background choice.

Make One Heart Quilt Block

  • Cut two red or pink rectangles from two fabrics of similar value, each 3-1/2" x 6-1/2".

  • Cut four 2" x 2" cream squares; draw a diagonal line from one corner to the opposite corner on the reverse of each.

  • Cut two 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" cream squares; draw a diagonal line as you did on smaller squares.
