Stitches From the Heart

Happy New Year! I think we have all been anticipating the arrival of 2021 since…. March. While circumstances around the globe are not as we had all hoped, I am really hopeful things will take a turn for the better this year.

To start off the year on a happy and positive note, I am excited to share a free quilt pattern and cross stitch pattern from The Fat Quarter Shop called Stitches From the Heart.

The quilt pattern comes in two sizes, one that finishes at 35″ x 35″ and another at 12″ x 12″. I chose to make the 12″ size along with 1″ half-square triangle (HST) triangles on a roll papers. I have a love for tiny pieces, but I know that not everybody understands that or has the same love. I used 5 different shades of V and Co Ombre and I love the fun effect it gave this mini.

The lovely folks at Fat Quarter Shop have put together a quilt kit for their Bella Solids version of the 35″ quilt. I love kits because they take the guess work out of making a quilt. It is really fun to just open it up and get going.

I hope your 2021 is off to a safe and healthy start and that we can all focus on things that bring us joy this year.
