Have A Heart Baby Quilt





Hi, my name is Alison Tudor of Sew and Tell Quilts. This is a fun and quick project that could make a wonderful quilt for a baby girl or a large Valentine's Day wall hanging.

Quilt Assembly

Working in sections, following the sectional layout diagram, sew the 2-1/2" squares together to construct the rows. Press the seams in opposite directions for each row to help make the seams line up as you build the quilt top. Once all the sections have been completed, stitch the sections together to complete the quilt top center.

Making The Borders
 For the inner border, cut two 1-1-2" strips 38" long and two 1-1/2" strips 40-1/2" long. Sew these to the sides and the top and bottom of the quilt top center.  For the outer border, alternately join pink and cream colored 2-1/2" border blocks to make a strip.  Two sides should require 20 blocks; 10 of each color measuring 40". Two sides should require 22 blocks; 11 of each color measuring 44".  Sew these to the sides and the top and bottom of the quilt to complete the top.
