It's been a few years since I released a quilt pattern. Funny thing, the last pattern I released was a Valentine's Day Quilt for Quilter's Candy Subscription Box. I have a huge thing for hearts and Valentine's Day in general. I might have more heart/Valentine's Day posts than Christmas posts.
So to say that I was excited to design and make this pattern is an understatement. I designed these button heart quilt blocks about a year ago and didn't get the pattern released in time for Valentine's Day, so I decided to wait until Valentine's Day came back around. And here we are!
Button Up Baby Heart Quilt Pattern Details
The pattern uses traditional piecing and is a fat quarter and half-yard friendly. There are two versions, which consist of four colors or nine colors. The nine-color version is my favorite as I like to use an ombre effect in my quilts, and the more colors I add, the easier it is to achieve the ombre effect.
Heart Button Quilt Fabric Requirements
The table below lists the specific fabrics I used in the cover quilt with the yardage required. The fabrics were a mix of basics from Art Gallery Fabrics and Dear Stella Fabrics.

The funnest part of making these heart quilt blocks is picking out the fabrics for the ombre color design. In the cover quilt I chose to use a rainbow palette and pastels and bright spring colors, the color values go from a light yellow to a bright yellow, through the oranges and pinks, and on down to the purple and blue hues that make your eyes travel from color to color in a pleasing pattern.
I was totally inspired to make this from the cute little heart buttons I used to sew on my children's Valentine's Day dresses I made years ago. I have always just adored those cute little heart buttons and when the idea hit me to make a quilt with heart buttons I knew it would be such a cuteness overload.
