Patriot's Heart Block Pattern

Pattern Description:

Celebrate Memorial Day and the 4th of July with a quilt project using this easy pieced block, compliments of the designer. The scrappy heart in patriotic colors is perfect for a quilt, a placemat, a wall hanging, a banner--or even a pot holder. Show your love of country in red-white-and-blue or stitch it up in other favorite color combos. Of course, it's great in pinks and red for quilted Valentine's projects, too! This easy-to-piece block is a great scrap buster! Cutting directions are given for three finished block sizes: 14", 10-1/2", or 7". Make as many as you need for the project you have in mind. Use scraps, pre-cuts, fat quarters, or fat eighths in your collection. Test your color combos using the blank blocks on page 4 of the directions. Let me see how you use this block--send a jpg to me at barbara.weiland@yahoo.com
