There's hearts all over the internet at the moment and can you feel all that love in the air? ♥ Valentine's Day is fast approaching and for all the romantics out there (me), its the day for true love.
I have a new free pattern for you today and this mini takes you back to a time of pure bravery, of selfless sacrifice; a time where fearless Crusader's fought for what they believed in and for the love of the people they held dear. A deep love of family, a true love of country and an insatiable desire to protect those they held close to their hearts.
Crusader's Heart is a quick and easy pieced pattern and I think your going to love sewing this little quilt. Its simple, basic piecing with a few quick corners so it all goes together nice and easy. Its a great afternoon project and you have plenty of time to sew your own mini before Valentine's Day.
Just a quick note regarding the pattern. I drafted the design so that the red heart is in sections and it can either be sewn in one fabric as I have done or you can make it scrappier and use two or three fabrics if you want, the choice is yours.
This was actually the first full project I made on my new machine and it was when we were first getting acquainted and I was a little timid but it all went together almost perfectly.
I picked a grey and white striped fabric for the bindings and its a soft finish to this quilt. I always lean to the darkest colour in a quilts palette when choosing a binding, but I mixed it up this time and tried something different :) I think I like it. What do you think? Yes or No?
HERE to download and print your free pattern. It includes full step by step instructions and diagrams, a colouring sheet to plan your fabrics/colours plus optional instructions for adding a hanging sleeve or corner hangers. And I may or may not have scattered a few little love quotes throughout the pattern as well :)........told ya I'm a romantic :)
Enjoy ♥ and don't forget to tag me in any photos you post of this mini. I loooooove seeing your work!
