The Evolving Hearts Quilt

I took the pattern for this 20-inch block and upsized it so the largest piece would fit on 18-inch-wide freezer paper. The resulting block will finish to about 28-1/4 inches.

Then I pieced 16 of the smaller hearts to go on the four sides.

I had drafted a corner heart pattern, of which I made up four. But when I had them all arranged on my design wall, I did not like the corner hearts. Because of the redrafting, they have a different silhouette which bother me.

I have drafted a new corner heart pattern, which I will be sewing up later this week.
Stay tuned!
