Hearts are popular anytime of year and with everyone.
Hi! This is Penny Halgren from QuiltBlockLibrary.com and QuiltBlockLibrary.tv. I remember folding hearts, little paper hearts and weaving them. They’re Danish hearts. And making like little paper baskets. These were pretty cool and they were open in the center. Well, I found this quilt block called “woven heart” which reminded me of those paper hearts. This one is just going to be one dimensional. You can sew it into a quilt or make a wall hanging.
I've got all my pieces cut out. So, let’s go over to the sewing machine and put it together. This block is going to be interesting to put together and it's going to end up then I'm going to sew it kind of diagonally, if that makes sense. But the first thing I'm going to do is finish this centerpiece. And so I’ll just sew these squares together and then I’ll come back and sew the third set of squares together. Now, I've got these two sewn together. So, I’ll just go ahead and add this third set on and stitch down the seam allowance. Now, just sew the top and bottom rows together here or the top and center row. And now, I’ll add the bottom together and then this center unit will be finished.
Next step here is to sew this little triangle onto this strange shape right here. And then, I'm also going to sew this other side of the strange shape onto the center section. Now, I'm going to sew these two sections together. And then, after that’s done, I’ll sew this bottom triangle onto the bottom. Now, I've got the bulk of the center done and I'm ready to add this big triangle on to the side. And once that’s done, I’ll be ready to add these little final triangles to make the square. Now, we just have one little triangle in this corner and one on that corner. This woven heart quilt block is all ready for a quilt or wall hanging. This was pretty fun. It was pretty easy to go sew it together.
Thanks for joining me. This is Penny Halgren from QuiltBlockLibrary.com and QuiltBlockLibrary.tv. If you’re not already over there, head on over to QuiltBlockLibrary.com and get your free download of this pattern. Thanks and peaceful piecing.
