Heart Quilt Pattern- Where Love Is

I made this quilt and released the pattern last summer, but realized today that I hadn't posted it here on the blog.  It's called "Where Love Is"- you can purchase the pattern here

It's quite a simple pattern. It calls for 4 half yards of pink and 4 fat quarters of red, but I made mine even a little scrappier than that! You can see the clever variations my testers made here.

I used a mix of mostly Bonnie and Camille pinks and reds for the hearts. The background is Moda Crossweave in grey, and the backing is from Jungly by Andrea Turk for Cinnamon Joe Studio. It's a bit redundant but I couldn't help myself, especially since it was a momento from a trip to Florida with my husband. He was kind enough to accompany me to Sunshine Sewing Studio on our getaway where I snagged 5 yds of this. Unfortunately I can't find it anywhere now except for as a fat quarter bundle here.

Look how tiny my pup was when I made this! She was just a wee little brand new thing.

The gorgeous loopy quilting was done by trusty Starlit Quilts.  I keep meaning to write a separate post about her, and still intend to, but let me just say- I met my match with her. I've used many longarm quilters and haven't had trouble with one. They all did a lovely job! But Star has everything I need- a wonderful array of backings on hand (she has an entire Etsy stop that's just my style), the kinds of batting I like, the price is right, and she is meticulous. I've never had a quilter ask me about my preferred scale until her. And I love her options! She's got great edge to edge designs available, but also does a top notch job with custom. The only thing that could possibly make her more perfect would be if she and I were neighbors! Bless that Star. That's her name :)

If you don't have a Valentines quilt at your house yet, you definitely still have time to make this one!  I named this one after one of my favorite songs. It's a children's song in my church, and I love hearing the little ones sing it, but you can listen to the choir singing it here

Thanks so much for stopping by. As usual, enjoy a blog reader discount of 15% off- this time with code HEARTS. This applies to any patterns! Expires a week from now. Happy heart day preparations!


  1. Yes! Do a write-up on Star. Im not sure how I found her, probably on Etsy. She has good prices and will do special orders. Ive ordered from her a few times, and plan to have her do a quilt or two for me. Looks like she does beautiful work! And she mails out your goodies real fast. And I love youre heart quilt!! Ive got one started from last year. Just need to get in gear.

  2. You are my FAVORITE quilter. Your quilt designs speak to me. I have real difficulty not purchasing all of your patterns. (The reason I don't is because there's only one of me. Find me some elves who don't procrastinate ...) Thank you for sharing your talent.
