Oh Scrap! : Heart Block Projects

 Remember all the heart blocks and tutorials I shared back in January?  Well, some friends and I have been busy sewing and with Valentine's Day just around the corner, I thought I would share a few projects.



Using some of my red and gray scraps, I turned four of these heart blocks...








...into this LOVE-ly table runner.  It has already found a home and is now gracing a table in New Mexico.  Yep, money in my pocket for more new fabric!











And some friends and I made these fun blocks and sewed up a quilt for a domestic violence shelter that takes in families. Even the sashing is scrappy!










All of the blocks were made from turquoise, lime green and purple scraps.  It is always fun to see the personality of each quilter in their blocks.  Some strictly follow the "rules"...





...others,  not so much!





Even Vicki over at Vicki's Crafts is using pink and blue charm squares to make some heart quilts for her local neonatal unit.  It's February so it is great to see everyone spreading the love!  Nice job Vicki!



Now I hope you share what fun things you are doing with scraps this week.  Here are the details for linking up:

  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.

Congratulations on the sale and super cute quilt to be donated.

I love that table runner! Great contrast between the colors and I like that anywhere you're sitting you'll get one heart that's right side up! :)

Nicky said...

Great scrappy hearts and what a fabulous way to celebrate Valentine's Day with a beautiful charity quilt. Better than flowers and chocs! Thanks for joining up with #scraptastictuesday.

I saw your red and grey heart block over at Val's Quilting Studio on her Tuesday Archives #49 linky, and I had to come tell you how good it looked. Then I saw the table runner - now I'm even more in awe. I'm not normally a heart kind of person, but the red and grey hearts are particularly beautiful. Nicely done! By the way, I love the name of your blog :)

Very cheerful tablerunner. Congrats on earning some cash :) That's always helpful.

Kate said...

Love your scrappy hearts. The green and purple heart quilt is my favorite, it's so pretty.

Ann said...

Such pretty scrappy hearts. I like how you turned the four red hearts to the different quadrants!

Cath said...
