I have a new free pattern for you today! Just in time for Valentine’s Day, you can whip up this little Candy Hearts throw for your favorite Valentine!
It’s made using charm squares of Dear Stella Polka Dots, but you could use scraps in any candy colors to make yours. It finishes at 54″ x 63″. You could always add more squares and make it bigger!
I used every color of Dear Stella Polka Dots, except for the three darkest blues and the darkest gray.
My big red heart is made from their Confetti Dots print.
I even used their Polka Dots for the binding! It’s a bright, happy, candy-colored, polka-dot bonanza!
The little hearts are appliqued on, then the words are embroidered on top of them. You could choose the quicker route and ink your letters on with a fabric marker, too!
With all the colors of a bag of candy hearts, it’s a bright shot of color in the middle of winter. My world has been looking pretty gray lately, so working on this happy, bright quilt was fun.
I quilted my quilt with a pantograph called “Sonnet” by Patricia E. Ritter and Valerie Smith. You can get the panto here, if you’re interested: Urban Elementz.
They also have two new free patterns out as well, that you might like:
I know, I know, too many quilts — not enough time, right?
