Free Heart Quilt Pattern – Easy Mini Heart Block Quilt Tutorial

Sharing is caring!

Are you looking for some Valentine’s Day sewing projects? This mini Free Heart Quilt Pattern is the perfect quick holiday project.  You can make this quilt with this easy Heart Block Quilt Tutorial. heart-quilt-pattern

I really wanted to make a quilt with happy hearts for Valentines’s Day and of course, it needed some pink in it!  I decided my sewing wall could use a mini Heart Quilt in all my favorite colors.

 I think my inspiration actually came about a month or so ago when Cassie from Sew Stitching Happy posted this cute little bundle on instagram that had that cute little pink scrabble fabric from Amy Sinbaldi and some black and white fabric in it.  Then the heart block quilt tutorial was on its way.

And when I saw this Love text fabric I totally swooned.  It is totally the perfect backing fabric for any Heart Quilt Pattern or Valentines Day Quilt.   I really could put this on just about everything including these Valentine’s Day dresses.

I also added some corner pockets on the back to hang it with.

I love mixing all the shades of pink but my absolute favorite part is the pop of aqua.  But you probably already figured that out 😉

If you own a Cricut Maker check out this version of the Free Heart Quilt Pattern made just for the Cricut Maker.  With the Cricut Maker Quilt Pattern, all you have to do is upload the Cricut Quilt Pattern File and the machine will cut the fabric for you.  You can see how precisely it cuts in the video below.

Beautiful quilt but it would be helpful if you offered a .pdf copy. Printer friendly is very useful to make the pattern again in the future. Thank you.
