As we approach Valentine’s Day, it’s lovely to see our Instagram feed bursting with hearts and sentiments of love. It’s also an important time to remind ourselves about self love, and to love ourselves first and foremost. So make sure you take the time this February to do something that makes your heart sing! Making a heart-themed quilt or project could be just what you need, and we’ve got a roundup of some of our favourite patterns trending now to inspire you.
Graffiti Hearts by Eliane of @patchworkandpoodles
If you’re looking for a modern, edgy vibe, then look no further than the Graffiti hearts quilt pattern. It comes with pillow, baby and throw instructions and a block swatch card and block coloring pages to help you stay organized. Although it looks like an improv pattern, it’s not, and the graffiti effect can be achieved by carefully following all the steps in the pattern. It’s just so cool! Shop the pattern here.
Lucky in Love by Jessica Entwistle of @jessjellybgood
If you want an alternative to hearts, but still want to infuse some pink and love into your quilt, consider the Lucky in Love quilt. Made up of simple squares, strips, Drunkard’s Path units and orange peels, this clever design is the perfect introduction to curved piecing. Available in 3 sizes, throw, baby quilt and pillow/mini quilt, there’s a wealth of possibilities. Click here to purchase the pattern.

Two hearts by Jemima Flendt of @tiedwitharibbon
You might know Jemima from the gorgeous Luminous Stars Pillow in the 2022 Quilter’s Planner, and we’re thrilled to share her latest pattern, Two Hearts, because 2 hearts is double the love, right? Not just for Valentines, this modern, bold heart design is also perfect for engagements, weddings or the arrival of a baby. This fat quarter friendly pattern comes in 3 sizes, baby, large lap/twin and queen, and there’s even a coloring page so you can get it right before you commit to cutting fabric. Shop the pattern here.
Love Boldly by Michelle Cain of @frombolttobeauty
You may have seen this clever, eye dazzling quilt at Quilt Con in Austin, right before things in the world took an unexpected turn. It’s also been a popular sew-along on Instagram; we can see why! This fat quarter friendly quilt pattern comes in three sizes, and it also includes a bonus block design and a very clever technique to create the wonderful 3D effect. You can get the pattern here.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this Valentine’s quilt round up and that you feel inspired to tell the ones you love how you feel with a quilt. It truly is a special gift that will bring joy to you the maker and to the receiver too.
You may also be inspired to design your own heart themed quilt or project! There’s still time to purchase the 2022 Quilter’s Planner or if you just want the design pages, why not consider the Design Book that contains all the pages of the Quilter’s Planner, without the diary pages or patterns. Happy Valentines Day! ❤️
