Triangle or Jewel Heart Quilt
This free Heart Quilt Pattern pieces together a sweet heart perfect for quilters of all levels. It can be made in two sizes: a 35″ square and a 12″ mini quilt! Essentially this is just triangles grouped together – anyone who can sew, can do this! the top stitching of hearts requires a machine setting to be able to do this. But broad horizontal lines would work just as well, in my opinion, and will be a lot less laborious. I do love the jewel effect of using tonal differences between the fabrics. Alternatively use the pattern for fabrics you already have in your collection.
I love how you can change the look of your quilt by just scaling the size of the triangles down and having a wider area to play with, to put that big heart in context.
This would be the perfect choice for those seeking a classic design with a modern twist. This pattern would feature that central heart, then surrounded by – for example – intricate geometric shapes, creating a visually stunning effect. The use of contrasting fabrics would enhance the depth and dimension of the quilt.

Easy Log Cabin Heart Design
This log cabin heart quilt block design was created specifically for Valentine’s Day. The chosen color scheme of this heart quilt pattern literally draws you into the heart. It makes the design more meaningful as well as pretty and cheery. The pattern is easy enough for novices and beginners. It would transform in a fun pillow for a teen room.
This log cabin heart quilt pattern is designed by Jennifer Ofenstein from SewHooked. Jennifer has been paper piecing for over 10 years, and you can tell by the finesse of the design. She’s made 154 patterns, several free, and this is one of them.
Marcia Wachuta designed the kind of heart quilt patterns that I would design and make: cheery, friendly, detailed but not too busy, great way to use up scraps. This paper piecing quilt pattern has a lovely flower fabric color combinations and a very-doable design. Nothing too complicated here. However, work these easy-to-make hearts into pillows or make them part of a larger quilt and you’ve got a stellar quilt design going. Yes, it’s a free quilt block pattern!
Follow the link below. You’ll see that Marcia also worked these hearts into ‘crazy’ bright colored quilted objects and blankets. Personally, I’d use them in a simple blanket design with lots of white, blue and green pastels around the art hearts instead; gentle colors that will offset the pink hearts and create a calm quilt. Perfect for a romantic girl’s bedroom, or on the sofa at Valentine’s day. Or any other day, as to me, hearts have year-round appeal.

Kona Color Cards quilt designed for Robert Kaufmann
Color Card Heart Quilt Pattern
This quilt is love at first sight, really. Robert Kaufmann hopes you’ll buy his entire Kona fabric series. But when you do purchase this rainbow of colors, you’ll get this beautiful result.
Alternatively, use your own imagination and creativity and color range to suit your guest room or child bedroom, for instance.
Very easy quilt block pattern (If you know how to sew).
Tip: if you don’t like to work with so many small hearts, or are strapped for time… then do some math, and make the squares 2x the size and make 4x fewer hearts. ;-)

Candy Heart Table Runner
This pattern features interlocking hearts, carefully arranged to create a sense of balance. Candy-colored fabrics (depicted) make this quilt playful and whimsical.

By selecting fabrics in coordinating colors or opting for a scrappy look, you can add a unique touch to this timeless design.
It’s a lovely, and relatively easy heart quilt block pattern with just 8 different colored fabrics on white. Beginners design. Top stitching is always optional but gives it nice depth.
