Have some HEART this Valentine's day and make this quick and easy heart appliqué Valentine quilt.
 
Pin It
 
First make a heart pattern from paper. Make sure the heart is small enough to fit inside fabric rectangles you have cut out.
You can make this easy to sew Valentine's day heart quilt. Cut out 6 red hearts. Place on the pretty side, in the center of each white square and zigzag appliqué on.
Sew the rows on your heart quilt together. Now let's make our rows. Sew your fabric rectangles to make four rows. Two rows should be "heart / strip fabric / heart" as shown in the photo.

The other two rows should be "stripped fabric / heart / stripped fabric" as shown in the photo below.

Make sure you have your fabrics pretty sides together and use the pressure foot as your guide when you sew the rows.

Add the borders on your Valentine's day heart quilt. Once you have all your rows sewn, now sew all the rows together to form your quilt top. To do so place two rows pretty sides together matching seams. Pin and stitch using the pressure foot as your guide. Continue to do so until all four rows have been sewn together.

Cut borders 5" by the length of each side.  Make sure the top and bottom border have an extra 10" to allow for the side borders.

You're almost done your Valentine's day heart quilt. Sew on the side borders first, then the top and bottom border.
Press the quilt. Press your quilt!
Place the quilt top, quilt bottom, and quilt batting together. Using your quilt top as a pattern, cut a quilt backing the same size from Valentine fabric, and cut quilt batting the same size.

Now place the batting down first, then the back of the quilt fabric with the pretty side facing up, and last the quilt top pretty side down as shown in the photo.

Pin all the way around the quilt. Leave a 6" opening on one side. Stitch around the quilt edge using the pressure foot as your guide. (Don't' forget to leave the opening.)

Your Valentine hearts quilt is finished! Trim seams and clip corners. Turn your quilt pretty side out and press. Hand stitch the opening closed. Tie knots with yarn or pretty ribbon going through all 3 layers to quilt your quilt.

 

Happy Sewing!
