Why We Like It
The I Heart You Quilt design is just so dang cute. Coming to you from Meghan of Then Came June and Lindsey of Pen + Paper Patterns, their simple graphic design of a heart bubble is such a fresh take on a classic heart quilt.
What better way to say "I Love You" than with this quilt in their favorite color? Or in a rainbow of colors?! It also makes a great awareness quilt (see the blue and yellow example below, representing Down syndrome awareness).
This is a really fun pattern that turns out so cute! Simple shapes and stitch-and-flip piecing make it beginner-friendly. We love that it has uncomplicated fabric requirements, and our solid fat quarter bundles and yardage work perfectly.
It's a single size pattern (55" x 61"), but you could easily add rows and columns to customize the size to your liking.
Tips + Tutorials
You can get up to 15 half-heart pieces from one fat quarter with some careful cutting:
Inspiration + Ideas
We sure had fun making digital mockups, match-making our fabric bundles to the I Heart You quilt pattern. It looks SO good in solids! To see the Kona colors for each of these mockups, go to our I Heart You Quilt Pinterest board.
Our rainbow bundles are an absolute perfect match to this pattern. You know that you want to make one of these!
2 FQ + Red Scrap
Make all the heart sections with 2 fat quarters and your favorite scrap of red. Add some white + background fabric, and you're all set. Makes a great Cause Awareness quilt!
Our monochrome bundles make a pretty single-color quilt with lots of value contrast that really makes the design pop. Grab one of our 5FQ bundles, Kona Cotton White + background yardage, and you're good-to-go.
Stay tuned to see what version Angela decides to make.
