Last February, I participated in the limited time What is Love? modern quilt block event. My contribution to the event was the Candy Hear Love quilt block.
My inspiration for the block: When I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of candy hearts. When I consider what love is, to me, love is an expansive feeling and means making room for more. With those two thoughts in mind, I designed the Candy Heart Love quilt block to be a fun, cropped, modern quilt block that might just inspire you to keep coming back for more!
Throughout 2023, I had a goal of expanding the block into a full quilt pattern with multiple sizes, but for lots of varying reasons, that priority has never shifted to be at the top. So, I have decided to release the block as a stand alone digital PDF. And the good news is that the block pattern does include information about how to use the block to create a 60″ x 60″ lap size quilt!
In addition, if you missed the What is Love? block event, below I’m linking to the other participants who have also released their blocks / patterns:
