Last week at the Quilter's Guild we asked to make heart blocks because February is coming soon and so is our Quilt Bee.  It was suggested that some of the hearts could be made into a donation quilt and maybe one could be added to each of our new donation quilts that are being made next month.   This past month the Guild ladies delivered 56 quilts to the various local senior's homes and hospitals to be used by the patients.

I am putting together a 12" block quilt so I made a heart block for this quilt.

12 Inch Block

I found this pattern on the Brandywine Valley Quilters BOM page
There are blocks on the site dating back to 2002.

I think I am going to check them out further for the quilt that I am making with my 12" blocks.

I didn't think the guild would like a 12 inch block so I made my squares and half-square triangles 2 1/2 inches so that my block measures 8 1/2inches.

My 8 1/2 inch block for the guild.

More Blocks

I finished the rest of the blocks for my blocks of the month and week.  I did wimp out though.  I figured that I was doing these  blocks for fun and I didn't like some of the blocks in the Sentimental Stitches BOM so I did two different ones.

Three 6 1/2 inch blocks and
two 9 1/2 inch blocks.

Remind me never to make a house block again.

I started doing the BOM from Apple Avenue Quilts.
