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 caring...it'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.

And now....my collection of more than a hundred links for free heart shaped quilt blocks or heart themed quilt or craft patterns all in one place for you to check out for special gift for a loved one, or for another Valentine's Day in the future!

  6. Michele, you have been busy! Thanks for all the heart links. I have saved them because I can always use a heart themed idea. You know the city I Live in specializes in love and hearts.

  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.
    Do you have any favorite ones on it? Have you made many of them?
    I hope life is going well for you and yours.
    I have sent my mother in law the textured quilt. Unfortunately her home has the Norwalk virus and so my sister in law can't get it to her just yet. We hope that she is doing okay..
    Be well, my friend,
    Regards,
    Anna
