I had forgotten when I did the filming that I had originally called this 'Hearts and Kisses' !  : click here for the pdf:

and the applique pattern is included at the bottom

This pattern would work just as well for wider strips - as I said in the text below - so if you go that route it would be great if you could share -send us a pic that is!

Happy Sewing - Valerie

 

 

This is a versatile little block that is created with simple strips and cornerstones.   A wide variety of colours can be used but Valerie has made this 9 block quilt (some time ago!) creating some blocks with 'dark' fabric strips and others with 'light' fabric strips and then cornerstones.   Remember that the terms 'dark' and 'light' are only references to the tone of the fabric and are the relationship of the strips to each other.

Valerie has used scraps from her stash, but layer cakes and/or jelly rolls could also be used;  if you use the jelly roll strips at 2.5" and don't cut them down in width, the block will work just as well - it will just be bigger!
Remember that the cornerstones will also need to be cut at 2.5" square.

The applique hearts can be created with your own favourite style of applique - satin stitch; blanket stitch; or because they are a simple shape, would also work as traditional  turned applique (just add seam allowance all round the template)  or indeed naive applique as shown by Anne Baxter.
