I have looked at many different projects and was happy to find this one. I am going to make this for my mom for Mother's day in her favorite flower, roses.
That sounds beautiful :)
Hi Hope,I am in the planning stages of my Zig Zag Love quilt. I would like to make a generous Queen size quilt for my daughter with bright colored hearts. Polka dots, some solids, but lots of bright summer colors. How much yardage of fabrics would I need for this? Any suggestions would be most helpful. Thank you, Linelle
PS: I have limited access to Layer Cake packs here. : )
Hi Linelle,It is hard to say without more detail, such as the finished size of the quilt and what size hearts you want to make. If you email me, I'll let you know how to figure out what you'll need. :)
hi,I am new to sewing, but would love to try this. Can you tell me how many charm packs i would need to make it for a queen bed? i know beds are all a bit different, but just a rough idea so i know how many charms to buy.thanks so much for you help
Hi MonicaYou would need a lot of charm pack hearts for a queen bed quilt, so I would recommend you use two Layer Cakes (10 inch squares). Make sure they contain at least 42 squares of fabric each - different brands have different numbers of squares per pack. The hearts would be larger, 9 inches finished, and you could make the quilt 81" square, nine rows of nine hearts. If you wanted it a bit larger, you could add borders all around or use another Layer Cake to add more hearts if you didn't want borders. You would also need to buy almost 5 yards of background fabric (for the nine row layout). You will have off-cuts you can use for another project though.There are instructions in the pattern for making a single bed quilt using a layer cake. You could follow these to get the cutting directions, or please feel free to email me with any questions or if you want more detail. I'm at firstname.lastname@example.orgThanks :)
This is so cute! I would like to make it in a twin for a friend's little girl. Just to be sure I understand...if I were to use a layer cake, there are instructions for bigger blocks?
Thanks! That's right. There are instructions for a layer cake quilt that finishes at 55" x 80" including borders, which is what we'd call single bed size in Australia. The blocks finish up at 9 inches square. It would be easy enough to widen the borders if you needed a bigger quilt. The borders in the instructions are only 5 inches wide.
Perfect...thank you for your quick response! It really is so much cuter that just a plain chevron. Can't wait to get sewing!
You're welcome! I hope you have fun with it :)
HELLO, just adorable! Just down loaded and now I'd like to do it in "Marmalade" too! Thank YOU so for sharing!Happy Designing+Stitching, Lindamsstitcher1948(at)yahoo(dot)com
Thank you so much for your lovely comment Linda! I do hope you enjoy making your quilt. Happy sewing!
Hi I have just attempted to purchase this sweet pattern, but I am new to Craftsy. I cannot open PDF files on my iPad. Is there another way?
Hi, the pattern is only available as a PDF. I don't own an iPad, but I think you can get a free Adobe Reader app for iPad, and other PDF reader apps for iPad too. I would suggest you contact Craftsy at email@example.com and see what they would recommend. I've found their customer service to be quick and helpful.Thanks so much :)
there is an iPad Adobe Reader app available. works great!
A friend recommended this pattern for me cause she knows I love hearts. It's nice to see there are other people who have been collecting heart fabrics for years too! LOL I am planning to make it approx. 36 x 36 (or whatever those directions call for a small baby quilt) so I can donate it to the hospital. They require approx. 36 x 36 inch quilts for the incubators. Thank you for such a beautiful pattern.
How sweet it would be to see a heart quilt in an incubator, so very nice of you. Thank you for your lovely comment. :)
This looks like a fun project, can't wait to get started.!
Thank you, I hope you enjoy it! :)
I like this, very cute!
So sad. I just bought this. Was expecting to get it in the mail (yep, I'm from dinosaur age). Now I can't download it. :( Can't even download latest version of Adobe Reader.
Hi Sharyl, I have sent you an email.
I will definitely be making this in a larger size. I have lots of HEART fabric and this is just what I want to do with it!
Wonderful! I hope you'll share photos when it's done :)
Beautiful, Hope! Happy hearts!
Thanks so much! :)
I love this pattern. I've been collecting 'heart' fabrics for years. Guess where they are going? This is the perfect Love quilt! I'd been trying to figure out what to take to work on at retreat this summer, you solved that issue!!! Thanks Hope, it's beautiful <3
How perfect! Thank you for your lovely comment. Have a great time at your retreat :)
I would like to make a baby quilt will the pattern assist me with the dimensions
There are instructions included for a quilt top 44.5 x 56.5 inches which would be a decent size for a baby quilt. Or, for something a little smaller and quicker you could make twice the blocks required for the small quilt shown, lay them out 8 hearts across by 10 down (you'll have 4 hearts left over), and add a 3.5 inch finished border all round. This would allow you to get the backing from a single width of regular quilting cotton. You'd end up with a quilt about 35.5 x 42.5 inches, also a decent size for a baby.
I fell in love with this pattern the first time I saw it, soooo cute. What are your rules for my finished project? is it personal use only?
Thank you so much! Please go ahead and do whatever you like with your finished project. You are quite welcome to sell, donate, raffle, gift... Or keep for yourself of course. As far a I'm concerned your finished product is yours - all I lay claim to is the pattern. :)
Oh, thanks so much. I want to make one and donate it to a fund raiser and of course I'll be making one for myself :)
That's so nice of you. I hope the fund raiser does well. :)
I love this can't wait to make it for my granddaughter
Thank you :) Do share pictures when you make one, please, I'd love to see.
I love the looks of this quilt---got to make one!!
Thank you :)
I'm looking forward to making it. My sister-in-law bought me a set of fat quarters from Hawaii, so I'll be making this little larger.
Sounds wonderful! I'd love to see it when it's done. I hope you'll share a photo or two :)
What is the difficulty? How are those little squares at the top of the hearts set in?
I'd call it an easy pattern. The method is quite simple and fully explained, and the piecing just involves squares and rectangles, with no setting in. The hearts are formed in halves, and the squares at the top of the hearts happen when the rows are joined.
this is sooo cute can't wait to make it for a friend
That's so nice of you - lucky friend. I hope you enjoy making it. :)
I swore I wasn't going to buy any more charts but I just can't resist because it's so gorgeous.
Thank you so much for the compliment!
Thank you for the pattern! When I saw your picture, I just fell in love with it! Hoping to get started on one very soon. It's just so bright and cheerful. Just right for a baby blanket.
You're welcome! Thank you for such a lovely comment :) I'd love to see some photos when you get a chance to start.
Could the ZigZag Love quilt pattern be made large enough for a crib for a baby?
Yes, definitely. There are instructions in the pattern for various sizes, as well as instructions on how to make a heart block in any size you like. From there it would be simple to make a crib quilt, with hearts in whatever size you prefer. If you wanted help at all to get to a specific size, I'd be happy to give some assistance.
I'm really excited to start this project...a well witten, very clear pattern and totally gorgeous design. Thank you Hope! Can't wait to see what you come up with next ;)
Thank you :) :) :)
This looks very well-written. I'm excited to start a big lap quilt.
That's wonderful! I'd love to see it, I hope you'll share photos.
I just downloaded this delightful pattern and I must say it is probably the best downloaded pattern I've ever purchased. The detailed instructions are supported by easy to follow drawings. As a very visual person who does not usually like written instructions this pattern is wonderful! Thank-you Hope and I look forward to your future patterns!
Linda Cole The Heart pattern is just Beautiful. The Moda heart pattern is cute but doesn't compare to yours. I plan on on making a throw from your pattern. Thank you Hope.
Thank you Linda, that's a lovely compliment. I hope you enjoy making the throw. :)
I'm a beginning quilter and have been looking and looking for a heart quilt to make for my daughter, (to remind her of my never ending love for her). I even have my quilting friends looking for patterns! I found it today! I can't wait to order this and get started : ) Thank you!!
What a lovely thought, I"m so glad you've found the right pattern. :) I do hope you enjoy making the quilt. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. Happy Sewing!
Thank you, I hope you enjoy it! :)
That was meant for you qwltr96 :)
Could this pattern be adapted to precursor like charms or jelly rolls?
I meant precuts.
Yes, there are instructions for 5" charm packs, 10" layer cakes and jelly rolls included in the pattern. :)
How many jelly rolls to make this size quilt.
what I should have said I have one jelly roll. What size of quilt in this design will I be able to make? thanks.
Hi acehaylin2863743 - With a jelly roll you can make a quilt 44 x 56 inches - that's without any borders. It's a lot of hearts, 154 in total. You can get 4 hearts, each finishing at 4 inches square, from one jelly roll strip.
I should just say that the quilt size I mentioned above assumes 40 strips of fabric in a jelly roll.
