What Is Love? Free Modern Block Event - Quilt Layouts!



After you got the the What Is Love? signup page and enter your email you'll have 15 modern block patterns delivered to your inbox.  Now what?  You might want to just play with the blocks and enjoy the creative experience without an end goal but most of us will want to make a quilt.  I've put together a couple layouts to consider.


The simplest approach is to make 2 of each block and layout 7 rows of 6.  This will give you a quilt that is 60'' x 72'', a perfect throw and very versatile.  This option also means you can make this quilt at uniform or as scrappy as you want.  But what if you want something more thematic?  How about a giant heart quilt!

This quilt uses 2 of each block but also includes 21 half square triangles 6'' x 6'' fini, you can even pick your favorite block and showcase in the upper left of the heart.  This layout makes a 90'' x 90'' quilt, so basically a short queen quilt.  Here is a more detailed layout for the Giant Heart quilt.

All the above measurements are finished sizes so don't forget to add that 1/2'' for seam allowance.  As you can see this quilt is constructed row by row too but each row is different so you'll want to pay close attention to the layout before you start that row.  What if you have a favorite block you want to focus on?  Don't hesitate to play around with just the one block like I did with my Sweet Pea block.


There are so many options to play with I hope everyone will signup and receive the 15 free modern blocks.  You won't be able to sign up after February 14th so time is running out.

"Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in Him, because we have trusted in His holy name. Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, just as we hope in You."

Psalm 33:20-22
