It is one day before Valentine’s Day. I know you won’t get this quilt done before Valentine’s Day, but I hope you’ll make it to use all year long. It’s a classic and has wonderful open areas for free motion quilting. It was so much fun designing this in EQ7. I don’t know what I’d do without that software. The image and requirements are below. (you will also find blog hop giveaway info at the end of this post)
And hop on over to see Ariane’s great Half Circle Pinwheel. She made a needle case, but I can see that block on placemats or in a quilt.
For this quilt you will need:
4 each red and white basket blocks (finished 10, unfinished 10.5)
1 each hearts embroidery block (finished 10?, unfinished 10.5?)
4 each cut 10.5? x 10.5? white blocks
Border 1 (red): 2 each rectangles cut 2.5 x 30.5?,
and 2 each rectangles cut 2.5 x 34.5?
Border 2 (white): 4 each rectangles cut 1.5? x 34.5? and
4 squares (red) cut 1.5? x 1.5?
Border 3 (red): 4 each rectangles cut 2.5 x 36.5?

And now, if you’re participating in the blog hop, I’m sure you want to know what you’ll find here as a giveaway. This has been a great debate for me, so the winner will have two options: The first option is 18 Candy Heart blocks and background fabric for the open blocks. The second option is machine embroidery files for the Candy Hearts. How do you qualify? Leave a comment on this blog between Monday and Friday and visit at least one of the other participating blogs each day this week. I am leaving this open for US and international entries. The winner will be selected by random drawing.
