Soft Baby Hearts



If I'd known how many times I was going to wind up making this quilt, I would've kept better track of the pattern source. All I know is that it was in an old magazine, it was for a bed size quilt, and the setting triangles were supposed to be plain.

The first one I made had nine hearts. It was a great baby quilt size, but it was a lot of work. I made one with four hearts and a plain border, which was just barely big enough for a newborn quilt. This time, I made it with 3" squares, hoping for a happy medium.

I'm thinking the next one will have nine 2" squares. Or have 1 1/2" squares and be bed size...my definition of "a lot of work" seems to have changed over the past couple of years.

I'm linking this post to Finish it Up Friday, Can I get a Whoop Whoop?, Link a Finish Friday, and Friday Finishes.

That is just darling! I definitely need to make this. Surely I can figure it out, but I may have to hunt for a pattern. I have a bin of 30's prints that would be perfect for this. Yours is super cute - thank you for the inspiration!

Love it. :D and wow!! 1.5" for a bed size - amazing amount of work, but would sure be terrific.

This is very cute. I really laughed at your comment about the definition of "a lot of work" because I feel the same way! Ha ha.

Well, I like it! It would be nice with nine hearts but sometimes less is more!
