Free Heart Themed Patterns: Quilt Blocks, Heart Quilts, Heart Pillows and Crafts

In honor of Valentine's Day and shared with love: my collection of more than 100 hearts quilt block patterns, quilt patterns, coaster patterns, heart shaped sewing projects directions, and even some heart themed Valentine card and paper craft projects!

Shown above: My completed block for the Australian Bushfires--Quilters Can Help! project. Part of my own version of a Healing Heart Quilt. Whenever we make a comfort quilt or donate a block to a given cause, we are putting a piece of ourselves...our heart...into that donation. Such quilts often include heart blocks and are called 'Healing Heart Quilts'. Whether they are given to heart patients, for cancer care, for hospice or to simply to show our love, faith, and's wonderful to make and keep heart blocks on hand. Because of my own interest in service quilting and my blog...a heart and hands block of my own design seemed the perfect gift.

  7. HI Michele,
    What a terrific list of Heart patterns that you have collected. I am looking forward to checking them out when I get a chance. It must have taken you awhile to collect them.

    Be well, my friend,
