For Valentine’s day 2022 I have created a set of 3 foundation piecing templates that are 3″ x 3″ and turned them into a garland.
For the garland I made 2 hears of each design, one with a dark background and the other one with a light background.
The video demonstrates how I turned the blocks into little ornaments.
- Miniature heart templates
This download is for 3 foundation piecing heart templates.
To make the blocks into ornaments, cut a square the same size as the block, place block and square right sides placing together.
Place a piece of ribbon folded in half between the square and the block where you will hang the ornament with the ribbon edges facing the edges of the square.
Then sew around the square with a 1/4″ seam allowance leaving a 1 1/2″ opening to turn the bag inside out.
Fill with polyfill.
When filled use a ladder stitch to close the opening.
You can find details of the above on the video.
I used regular copy paper but you may find it to be a bit thick. You can use special paper for foundation piecing if you prefer.
Note: I recently started to use an Add a quarter ruler, the yellow ruler in the video, after some followers recommended it and I have to say it’s a true time saver.

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.
