Scrappy Heart quilt

Linking up my scrappy charm heart quilt with Oh Scrap. Cynthia had posted her smaller hearts a while back and a link to the bigger heart using charm squares. So I thought one big heart and a border would be a perfect size of 36" for a donation quilt for our local neonatal unit. So I dug out several scraps of pinks and and my 5" sq ruler and wow in no time at all I had this yummy stack of pinks cut. I layered several to make it quick cutting.  And once I had the pinks done I might as well do the blues too for future quilts. Since there are so many charm quilts one can make I just cut up a lot of the pastels so they will be ready for future projects.


I decided to make the heart look like it is floating in the center so I added a small white border before the outside pink one. This is so simple-try one!!  Here is Cynthia's heart block and The big heart from the FatQuarter Shop.

I am editing this to say check out the link parties I am joining this week along with Oh Scrap there is Freemotion by the River and Let's Bee Social.

  1. Pink and Pretty is your Heart Quilt. I like how you have added the white border before adding the pink border. Makes the heart really stand out.

  8. I made several of the smaller heart quilts, but never thought of making a large one for a baby quilt. Great idea! And yours is adorable. I see more hearts in my future!
