::: About the Design :::
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!
Templates and Template Preparation
I work with acrylic templates when I am piecing curves, but I know that not all templates are the same and not everyone has templates. When cutting the concave and convex shapes, you may use templates included at the end of the PDF, standard 4ʺ finished / 4½ʺ unfinished Drunkard’s Path acrylic templates (I personally use templates from Jen Carlton-Bailly). Note: If you have your own set of Drunkard’s Path acrylic templates, I recommend printing out the templates and verifying that your templates match the concave and convex shapes suggested for the pattern.
When you print and cut out the templates, make sure that the scaling is set to 100% or Actual Size before you print. Measure the 1ʺ square on the template page with one of your quilting rulers to make sure that the templates are printed to the correct size. You may use the printed templates and a fabric marking device of your choice or using template material, trace the paper templates onto the material to create your own templates.
- I find a smaller 28mm rotary cutter ideal for cutting curves in combination with acrylic rulers. This is totally optional. A 45mm rotary cutter will also work very well.
