WIP Wednesday – Heart Blocks

Happy Wednesday!

I love anything with hearts in it, and I’m sure I’ve mentioned how much I love the log cabin quilt block.

Since Valentine’s Day is coming up quickly I decided to make a log cabin heart table topper. I found lots of inspiration online for log cabin heart quilts to help me draft my own layout.

I’m a fan of specialty rulers and based my sketch/layout using both the Creative Grids 6 inch curvy and 6 inch regular log cabin trim tool I came up with my very low tech quilt pattern! 🙂

Using 4 scraps batiks fabrics I had this:

I also wanted placemats and came up with the brilliant idea of using my creative grids round up tool to make a drunkard’s path heart block. Again same pattern, this time 4 inch blocks.

Not going to win any contests but it was fun thinking outside the box and I have something that we will definitely use.

If you are looking for more traditional valentine ideas Julie from The Crafty Quilter has some great ideas in this post.

Happy Stitching!
