Sharing Your Heart
Every time I share a quilt, I feel I am sharing a piece of my heart with the person gifted with the quilt.
This last week, I learned that a recipient of a quilt that I created with some friends from my church passed away. The family shared with us that she was covered with the quilt during her last days on earth. I like to think that it comforted both her and her family to know that she was loved.
My guess is that many of you also express your love in the quilts you make for others.
My Favorite Hearts
In the class, I also included how to combine the quilts with a calendar (also designed in Electric Quilt) that could be used as a screen share on your computer.

In the following free tutorial I will share how to draft the two pieced blocks and how to create a custom set quilt that incorporates the blocks. I also share how to add a block (or motif) from another EQ project file.
Here are the blocks from the video.
The blocks and quilt were colored using the Riley Blake collection New Dawn designed by Citrus and Mint Designs. I liked the pinks along with the modern vibe of the fabric. They were included in the Stash 2020 Download Collection 2 that is available for purchase from Electric Quilt.
You can also download the the swatches directly from Riley Blake. The collection was released in August 2020 --- so it should still be available in quilt shops and online.
Here is my designed Valentine quilt using the New Dawn fabrics.
New Pattern Release -- Valentine
I just released a new pattern that use the folded corner technique to easily piece the quilt along with adding some simple applique.
The pattern also includes files for using your favorite electronic cutting system for the the applique elements. This includes a svg file sized for Cricut Design Space, a CWPRJ file for Brother Canvas Workspace and a Silhouette V3 file for Silhouette Studio users.
The full pattern with the bonus cutting files is on sale this week, for the new release price of $5. The sale ends February 14, 2021.
