Put a Little Love in Your Quilt

Welcome to my stop on the Put a Little Love in Your Quilt blog hop hosted by Carol.  Today I share my checkerboard heart runner with you.  I used a tutorial by Julie for the heart block, I used her large block.  It was so much fun to see this come together.

First I made this red and whited version.

Next came a red and pink version

And third came a black, pink, and red version. 

These were so much fun it was hard to stop making them.  After I put the blocks together I cut white 1.5" strips to border the set of 4.  The outer border is cut at 2.75".   Julie has a great tutorial for making the round lobes of the hearts, which makes it quick and easy to whip these up.  You still have time to make one for Valentines!

Valentines is not something I usually make since I only do fall craft shows, but, now that I have an Etsy shop I find it so much fun to make for lots of different seasons and holidays.   For anyone who is new to my blog you can see more heart projects I did recently HERE and HERE


This hop has been so much fun and full of great ideas, I do hope you will visit the other bloggers.  Here is a full list.

  7. These little table runners are a great way to celebrate the season of love. The fabrics you chose for each of them are fun, but your quilting really makes them sing. Love how you quilted the little checker boards.

  9. Oh, your runners are too cute! Reminds me of the little woven construction paper hearts that our neighbor boy always used to bring my daughters on Valentine's Day. So cute! I can see how you just can't stop at one! Thanks for the link so I can try it myself.

  12. Oh, my goodness, they really make a statement! This is a fun pattern. 15 years ago (omg, THAT long ago?) when my daughter’s friend’s started having babies, I made my daughter an 'auntie' quilt using it. Thought she needed something she could toss down on the floor for visiting babies. She’s still using it!
