How to make the blocks for the Strippy hearts quilt

“Essentials” pattern

This pattern has the basic information to make the quilt top including the heart template.

Order my book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
