Hearts a flutter part 2

Hello again - it's so nice to be snuggled up sewing in the warm, while it snows outside! and to be sewing red hearts is all the more satisfying. This week I am sewing the triangles together to create a heart block as shown below.

First lay out all the pieces you need from your selection of different red fabrics – making sure that you like the mix of colours. 

Then join the triangles into rows as shown ( press the seams as you go)

 Join the last 2 rows of triangles together as shown and then attach the black corner triangles

How easy was that – now you have a choice of what you are going to make – a cushion cover, lap quilt, wallhanging, because that will determine how many blocks you will need to make.
When you’ve made that choice continue to make the heart blocks until you have enough, but lay all the pieces out for all the blocks so that you don’t finish with a block all with all the same fabrics. Next week we will add sashing.

So enjoy the sewing and the weather ( my 4 year old grandson is praying for enough snow to build a snowman, so that he can send it to his cousins who are in Uganda and miss the snow!! )
