My second quilting pattern is available today in my Etsy shop! The Dashed Heart quilt is a mini quilt which I made with the intention of being a wall hanging, but it would be equally cute on a table or even as a large pillow!
It’s apparent that I hate matching seams, since all of my patterns thus far have no matching seams to worry about. It sure makes life a lot easier! This pattern is definitely suitable for a beginner. It’s likely evident from the picture that it is simply a bunch of rectangles sewn together. Really the only tricky part is keeping track of all the small pieces! This is definitely a weekend project, possibly even a one-day project if you have a few dedicated sewing hours.
If you’d like to replicate the quilting I did on this version, I did a simple crosshatch pattern, with the lines 1/2″ inch apart. The sections (what are they called in this type of quilting??) are approximately 2.25″ apart. I always quilt with my stitch length at 3.0.
Lastly, this version uses shades of pink/peach/purple and all the fabric is from Kona Cotton. I buy mine from Fabric Bubb. The colors I used are: Baby Pink, Bellini, Dusty Peach, Peony (gotta use that one!), Primrose, Woodrose, and Foxglove.
I hope you enjoy making your own Dashed Heart quilt, and I hope you’ll share it with me so I can admire it! Thanks so much for supporting Peony and Fern!
