Hearts and Churns quilt Sew Joy Creations

I never used to make quilts with hearts on them - apparently that was years ago! Traditionally hearts on quilts were reserved for brides or babies. Not anymore! Heart quilts are more popular than those heart candies with sayings on them:)

I went through my projects and tutorials to put them all in one place for you to enjoy.

QUILTsocial heart wall hanging

One of my most recent heart projects is this wall hanging I made with selvages and bold fabrics for QUILTsocial. You can find the links to the free tutorial in this blog post:

I'm starting to see a selvage theme here too! This tutorial for a heart uses selvages that are sewn to one string of fabric. The string in the heart in the photo is the green with white polka dot strip.

These are fun to make! Check it out here  Selvage Heart on a String tutorial

Ummmm, more selvage hearts! 

Perhaps it's because February is so early in the year and I always seem to be in a clean up and make do frame of mind that so many of heart projects are also selvage projects. Well, I'll just keep going anyway :)

I love this pillow project I called Upcycled Love. I turned a shrunken dress shirt into functional art!

Pockets of love pillow cover newsletter subscriber free pattern

The post also links to my Pockets of Love pillow cover. Yes, more selvage hearts. This one is a free pattern for my newsletter subscribers.

And there's another free project for newsletter subscribers that includes hearts and uses charm packs.
A set of placemats with a mini runner.

hearts and churns quilt Sew Joy Creations

My latest heart project is the Hearts and Churns quilt. I love the churn dash block so it's only fitting I incorporated hearts and churns into one quilt block. This is a paid pattern available as a download from my online shop or also at Etsy.

I hope you found something here to inspire you to make something with hearts on it - maybe even try using some selvages to do it :)

Lots of  JOY,

Sarah V.
