Free Heart Themed Patterns: Updated 2011


In honor of Valentine's Day and shared with love: my large updated collection of hearts quilt block patterns, quilt patterns, coaster patterns, heart shaped sewing projects directions, and even some heart themed Valentine card and paper craft projects for 2011.

Whenever we make a comfort quilt or donate a block to a given cause, we are putting a piece of ourselves...our heart...into that donation. Whether they are given to a loved one, heart patients, for cancer care, for hospice donations, or to simply to show our love, faith, and caring...it's wonderful to make and keep heart blocks, quilts and other projects on hand....any time of the year!

My posts are always updated at my primary blog and all followers are followed there. So, if you signed up to be a follower here..thank you so much, but could you please transfer your allegiance to With Heart and Hands, instead? Thanks so much!!!

My own heart shaped or themed tutorials:
