Hi there, I’m Natalia from Piece N Quilt. Once again I am very honored to be able to share another tutorial here at Moda Bake Shop. I love seasonal quilts so I’ve created this one to hang in my home for Valentines Day.
1-L’Amour Jelly Roll.
1 Yard Bella Solids White Bleached.
2 Yards Sandys’ Solids Brown for border, words and binding.
6 Yards L’Amour Circles Pink for small border and backing.
Start out by separating your jelly roll strips. I tried to create some contrast with my strips.
Now take the pieces that will be block centers.
Cut them to 14.5″ strips.
Now from the outer block strips cut 2 – 2.5″ squares. Attach to the ends of the blocks.
From the remaining strip attach the two other sides to the block. The block should now measure 18.5″x6.5″
Repeat this process until you have 18 blocks.
Next you will take 7 of the remaining jelly roll strips.
Cut the strips into 3 – 10″ strips.
Sew the strips together creating a 10″x6.5″ block.
From your Bella Solids White Bleached
material cut into 6 – 2.5″ strips. Sew them back together into two sets of three strips. (You are creating the background for the 2 applique word blocks.)
Cut one block to 6.5″x29″ and one to 6.5″x19″.
Now go to your computer and print out the following words. “Hugs & Kisses” and “LOVE” we used the font Juice in Microsoft Word. Make the letters 5.75″ tall.
Use our starch applique tutorial
. Pin the words that you’ve printed out onto the fabric as shown in the images above & below.
We used a small blanket stitch to applique the words on.
Using the picture above sew your blocks together.
Take your leftover strips and sew them together side by side to create pieces for your applique hearts.
7 – .75″ brown strips.
Sew the strips together as shown in the image below.
Now, add borders to the top and bottom of your quilt.
Now create your corner blocks.
You will need to cut 4 – 2.5″ strips off of the border material.
Now take 4 – 4″ strips of your pin material and sew that to one side of the brown border piece.
For the other side of the corner cut and add a 1.5″ border piece.
Refer to the picture below.
Now measure the sides of the quilt and attach borders using these cornerstones.

Now, quilt, bind and enjoy!
