There’re many heart blocks out there. These two are made with foundation piecing, one of my favourite techniques and I hope it becomes one of yours too.
I used regular copy paper but if you prefer you can use special paper for foundation piecing if you prefer.
Let’s get to it!

The other heart block belongs to my Mysteries Down Under quilt.

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.
Buy individual chapters of my book
Now that my publisher is going out of business I have bought the rights to publish my book. Now you can download individual chapters. Each digital download is a bundle with 4 quilt patterns in it.
As well as the instructions and fabric needs to make the blocks you’ll find a section on quiltmaking basics at the end of the pattern that discusses:
- Squaring up blocks
- Assembly and quilting
