Valentine’s Day Quilt

I just love sewing for Valentine’s Day!  The fabrics are so fun and cheerful!  I have been working through my list of UFO’s, which include utilizing some fabric that I purchased a LONG LONG time ago (like 2-3 years ago).  When I came across a fun and free heart block tutorial by Cluck Cluck Sew, I was inspired to use my beloved fabric panel in this quilt.  Let me share with you how I made this fantastic Valentine’s Day Quilt!

Using Allison’s tutorial was super fun and easy.  The hearts came together easily.  The fabric that I used for the hearts really worked well for the Fabric Panel in the middle.  I used the medium size heart block to frame the bordered panel and it turned out cute!  I would highly recommend using a Frixon Pen for the snowballing and also squaring up your hearts before you sew them together.  That just makes for a nice and straight quilt top!  I made several blocks and even had a few left over.

I loved using my Juki 350QVP to finish this quilt.  I also used my Quilting Disks to help me move the quilt under my needle.  If you haven’t learned about my fantastic Long Arm Quilting Machine, you can read more about that HERE.  I simply love using it!

Since I had some leftover blocks, I decided to use these in the back of the quilt.  This worked out perfectly because I was a little short on the backing anyway.  I used a quick and simply loopy free motion quilting design.

When my husband asked me who I made the for, I told him that I honestly didn’t have an intended recipient just yet.  But for now, our cat is enjoying it as she perches on the back of our couch!

Happy Quilting!

Foundation Paper Piecing Tutorial

I love foundation paper piecing!  I think it is the easiest way to get perfect quilt blocks.  Unfortunately, the technique is not as straight forwards as patchwork and requires us to think a little backwards!  I wanted to take the mystery out of the foundation paper piecing technique for you.  Let me break it down for you by showing you what you need and how to do it.  Soon enough you will be wanting to make everything using this technique.

I wanted to take the mystery out of the foundation paper piecing technique for you. I made a step-by-step video tutorial so you can easily learn how! #Tutorial #Free #Pattern #Printables #Quilts #Heart #Easy #Templates #ValentinesDay #Valentine #ForBeginners #Beginner #Art #Design #ArtDesign #Block #Hip #Trendy #SewMuchMoore #SewMuchMooreInStore

tools and supplies needed

I used a free pattern from the Valentines Day Table Runner post.  You can find that right here.  Most of that pattern is patchwork, with the exception of a few end border hearts.  You will find those on page 2 of the pattern.

I am a visual learner and could never figure out how to perfect the FPP technique by reading instructions.  I figured it would be better if I made a video to explain the process.  I hope you find this video helpful!

I just love that little heart block!  I think I might make more and turn them into a cute little Mug Rug!

What would you do with a few of these little blocks?  

Let us know in the comments below!

Happy Sewing!
