Hearts Aplenty Mini Quilt

Here's one more Valentine's Day show and tell. 
I originally created this for Paintbrush Studio Fabrics, using their Painter's Palette Solids.

This quilt measures just 18-1/2" square--a cute heart-filled table topper or wall hanging. 

Painter's Palette Solids used: (background) Honeycomb; hearts (top row, from l-r) Clematis, Claret, Bubblegum; (middle row, l-r): Real Red, Lipstick, Fuchsia; (bottom row): Pale Pink, Raspberry, Claret

I used this heart block tutorial from Alison of Cluck, Cluck Sew. She offers the block in multiple sizes; I used the 4" finished square size. 

 Here's a finished heart: 

I made nine hearts--eight in shades of red, pink and purple, and one in reverse: 

Laying out hearts with 1-1/2" x 4-1/2" Honeycomb vertical sashing and 1-1/2" x 14-1/2" horizontal sashing:

Assembling the quilt center: 


Adding 2-1/2" wide borders. I added colored inserts on each side just for fun:

Straight line quilting:


Ready for the binding--with a flange-style edge for a pop or color:

Love these hearts!

Simple straight line piecing enhances the design:


A valentine decoration, ready to go in just an afternoon!

Happy Valentine's Day!
