I took a little break from working on the Nyan Cat quilt.....I have it about almost pieced and the backing won't be here for about a week so I decided to play a little. I wanted to make a Valentine Heart Twister last year and never got it done so I decided to work on that.
The size of this is 18 inches square.....I could have made it into a pillow!
- 10 dark red squares
- 11 red squares
- 6 medium pink
- 7 light medium pink
- 15 background squares
Follow this diagram for the placement of the colors. Note: the top row has a background square in the center, not a pink.
As you can see I am using a template I bought from a quilt store some time ago. I also drew this block in Electric Quilt and have a diagram that I made in EQ.
here that shows how to turn the blocks after you cut them if you would like to see more.
Once you have pieced the blocks together add a 3 inch border of red fabric and quilt as desired. I cut my binding in 2 1/2 inch strips the width of fabric and it took 2 strips.
I'm trying something new - if you would like to download a .PDF file click here this should take you to a Goggle Document that you can save.
