Bridal Hearts

 An opportunity was offered to make make heart blocks to be included in a bridal quilt.

A free pattern was given (link), as well as paint swatches for the colors.

The bride grew up before our eyes on mom's blog and this opportunity allowed us to be part of the celebration and inclusion to the next chapter of her/their life.

This is such a cute, fun pattern. I liked it so much I decided to make some for myself. There are measurements for hearts from 4 to 10 inches. I chose the 4 inch size.


As I made the hearts, there was a bonus block. As I trimmed the corners, I sewed them and made these adorable tiny pinwheels.

I've never made anything this small. They are so cute. Like the hearts, they have no specific plan. So I will just save them until something inspires me. I see more tiny blocks on the horizon.

Have a blessed day.

The good thing about tiny blocks is that it uses very small scraps. =) As fabric gets more expensive, it becomes more wasteful not to use every scrap ... but I admit I did throw some away as I was trimming yesterday! Your hearts look so pretty.

The hearts are a lot of fun, and I'm loving those pinwheels.
