Put a Little Love in Your Quilt

Welcome to my stop on the Put a Little Love in Your Quilt blog hop! This hop is the brain child of Carol who blogs at Just Let Me Quilt. There are so many great quilters participating, I'm sure you'll find a number of fantastic Valentine projects to add to your To-Do list.


My scrappy heart quilt was inspired by a free tutorial from Temecula Quilt Co that you can find here.

Obviously, I changed the layout a bit, but my heart blocks were made following the tutorial.



I used batik scraps for the hearts and white Kona cotton for the background. The binding is a purple batik. The finished quilt measures about 30" X 40" (which makes a perfect size for a little bus quilt!)

Here is a schedule of all the blogs participating, including yesterday's in case you missed any of those:

  8. I had to go see what a "bus quilt" was...oh my...what a great idea! It would be so nice if other bus drivers in cold areas would follow your daughter's example on this. That sweet little heart quilt will definitely warm the body and soul of some cold little child. Having lived in Las Vegas my whole life, the summers were scorchers for sure, but the winters on the bus were cold! Thanks for sharing your beautiful quilt and for playing along in the hop. :O)

  25. What a sweet and perky quilt you made. I really love it and had to look up what a bus quilt is again. I've read about your quilts for kids laps and it's such a thoughtful and special endeavor. This one is the perfect heart project for the blog hop but no doubt, it will be loved throughout the year.
