A Valentine’s Quilt

Valentine's quiltI wanted to share a quilt that I made a couple years ago.  I think of it as my “Valentine’s Quilt”.  It’s actually called “Miss Jump’s Broken Hearts Quilt” from the Star Quilt Company and it was designed by Linda Brannock.  My brother gave me the pattern for Christmas a few years ago and I think he got it at Quilter’s Station in Lee’s Summit, Missouri.  It was really interesting & different to make.  The pattern calls for you to stack 6 to 8 coordinating fat quarters on top of each other and cut all the pieces out, then you mix them up and sew them together.  This method was fun but I felt like there were a lot of fabric scraps left over so it was a little wasteful.  Of course I have no problem using up those scraps for another project!

Valentine's quilt I  made my quilt a little smaller than the pattern called for but I just wanted a wall hanging or throw size. I had fun quilting it on my sewing machine with swirls and hearts.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
