cf Hearts quilt pattern.

My new cf Hearts pattern is finally here!

I love simple shapes, and the heart is lovely one to take on.

While thinking about projects to make to show off my new (old) fabrics, I kept coming back to the idea of using this simple shape. There are many things I love about this fabric collection, but one of the biggest things is how it feels like I’m sewing with old friends. There’s a comfort and excitement with each piece, and I loved the idea of capturing the pieces with an endearing symbol.

On the creative side, I liked how this project can showcase many colors and fabrics. You can play with color and texture in many ways. (I already have more hearts projects planned!)

On the technical side, the appliqué shapes are really fun to sew. You have gentle outside curves, a single point and an outside corner that make it anything but boring to work on. This shape is beginner-friendly, but the creative possibilities can make it exciting no matter who wants to make it.

The downloadable PDF version is now available here, and the printed version will be hitting shops in a few weeks. (If your local shop is interested in purchasing copies, just let me know, and I’ll get them connected to those details.)

There are 3 project sizes included in the pattern, it’s charm-pack friendly (which is what this version is made from) and I have been dreaming up so many ways to work out this project. I think that 1 heart would make a great label on the back of a quilt, or I’ve been thinking about how fun it would be to make a signature quilt made from Hearts…or I’ve even thought about putting some hearts onto a tote bag…OH, and bigger projects with more hearts? I’ve been thinking about that too.

    So pretty! I love how you’ve grouped like-colors from different fabrics together, and YES I love the idea of a quilt label with the heart shape!

    I love this so much, going to your store right now!
    Did you quilt the background first and then applique the hearts or quilt around them? It’s stunning❤

      Thanks, Carolyn! I appliquéd everything first, and quilting the project last.

  3. Hearts Jetty quilt : carolyn friedlander , sewing patterns - February 10, 2020

    […] My first Hearts quilt is the wall hanging size. Each heart is made using a different fabric, and the background is all from the same fabric. That’s a great approach because you get little bits of many different things. This throw-sized version uses a different strategy. There are 16 different blocks, each with its own heart and background pairing. There’s a different kind of satisfaction that you get working with each fabric a little more and being able to see more of it in the quilt. It’s still really colorful and a little more scrappy. […]
