Heart Quilt Pieced Pattern - 8 inch block

Guest Author - Judie Bellingham & Kim Noblin

Heart - 8" Quilt Block

Here's an simple pieced heart pattern that you can use in your quilt projects. We'll be using the square in the corner technique for greater accuracy.

Fabric Key:

Cutting Instructions:

Cut two 2-1/2" x 4-1/2" rectangles and one 6-1/2" x 8-1/2" rectangle.

Cut four 2-1/2" squares and two 4-1/2" squares.

Sewing Instructions:

Step 1: Using a ruler and a pencil (or your favorite marking method), draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of all yellow 2-1/2" squares and 4-1/2" squares.

Step 2: Place a yellow 2-1/2" square on the right end of a red 2-1/2" x 4-1/2" rectangle (right sides together) as shown below. Stitch a seam on the diagonal line that you drew Step 1. Trim the fabric above the sewn line to 1/4" and press the seam toward the yellow fabric. Repeat on the left end and press the seam toward the yellow fabric. Repeat once more for a total of two flying geese units.

Step 3: Place a yellow 4-1/2" square on the bottom left corner of a red 6-1/2" x 8-1/2" rectangle (right sides together) as shown below. Stitch a seam on the diagonal line that you drew Step 1. Trim the fabric below the sewn line to 1/4" and press the seam toward the yellow fabric. Repeat on the bottom right corner and press the seam toward the yellow fabric.

Step 4: With right sides together and using a 1/4" seam, stitch the Flying Geese units together as shown below and press the seam to one side. The top of the heart has been made. Now sew the top of the heart to the bottom of the heart as shown below. Press the seam toward the bottom of the heart.

Your block should measure 8-1/2" on all sides. It will measure 8" finished size when it is sewn into a quilt.
