Welcome to Just Let Me Quilt's Put a Little Love in Your Quilt Blog Hop.
Today is my day to share my project with you. Now all the project in this blog hop have to have a heart featured somewhere in the project.
I decided to has some fun with some English paper pieced hearts. There is a couple of ways to make hearts too. Looking through my stash of papers and templates I had the Jewel shape and when you put two together you get a heart shape, like this.
So after making a stack of hearts I had a play with them and ended up with 5 hearts join in a circle creating a star shape. It is a nice surprise when you get a secondary pattern. That is why I called this project Stars of my Heart.It is an easy block to make. You prepare your shapes and sew two jewels together to create the hearts.
Lay the hearts out in a circle so they are just touching and applique in place.
The rest is standard sew your blocks together with sashing strips following by a border then the second border. These are very basic instructions, if you are experienced quilter you could probably work it out.
Now I will add this block to the Cynthia's Ark Block Library with the full instructions for the table runner which can easily be made into a quilt by making more blocks. You can sign up for the Block Library on the top right hand side of my blog. That way it will get it to your inbox when I release it with a newsletter.
The fabrics I used in this project came from Sue Daley's Beaujolais range. To celebrate this Blog Hop I have put together a little bundle of Beaujolais fabrics for you to win. Now if you don't win and want some of these fabrics you can find them in my webshop.
