Can you feel that? It's the spark of new romance! Specifically, we're head-over-heels for these adorable quilt designs that reinterpret the classic symbol of love. Find a little inspiration here, then tackle a project that'll show everybody just how much heart you really have.
Let's Talk About Love
Say hello to a fun spin on the conversation heart. We love how this design layers a gorgeous baptist fan quilting motif on top of simple, graphic piecing. Plus the cute combo of red and pink in the hearts adds extra pop!
Take a Piece of My Heart
This quilt makes us think of that dizzy, head-in-the-clouds feeling that comes with new love. To get the effect, you’ll need to use a combo of prints and solids in two color groupings for the heart. (Extra points if you choose an unexpected color!) Grab low-volume prints for the background — they’ll look almost white from far away while adding an extra layer of dimension up close.
Cross My Heart
If you like a bold statement for V-Day, we're with you. We're loving the fearless mix of colors and prints in these graphic, paper-pieced blocks. And did you notice the adorable contrast border? So cute for a wall-hanging or table runner!
A non-traditional Valentine quilt looks great year-round, and this one is — bonus! — super quick to piece together. This amazing kaleidoscope palette is a mood-lifter for sure, but this design could be equally cool in a more subdued color scheme, if that's how you roll.
Open to Love
Traditionalists, we got you! These candy pinks, sassy purples, and romantic reds scream Valentine’s Day. We especially love how the quilted heart motifs don't match up to the pieced pattern. It's so much more fun that way.
If you’ve got the post-V-Day blues, consider it an excuse to raid the leftovers pile and piece your scrappy heart out. This design looks super complex at first glance, but because the teal, navy and gray strips are all equal width, it's actually pretty simple to cut and piece.
