This cute quilt block tutorial by SewVeryEasy on YouTube is one of my favorite sewing projects because of how pretty it is. If you are looking for a challenging quilt to try this weekend, then you might want to start with this project which offers intermediate difficulty and complication but is still easy enough that even beginners can finish it on the first try.
Cut out all of the fabric pieces that you’ll need, then start making the heart at the center first. Grab two 6½” x 12½” rectangles, then place two 3″ blocks on both top corners of each rectangle, and sew them diagonally from corner to corner. Place a 6½” square at the bottom of each rectangle, then sew them from corner to corner, and press the seams open. Trim off the extra fabric ¼” after the seams, then sew the two pieces together, and you’ll see a heart-shaped block.
For the hourglass blocks, start with two patterned 13″ squares, lay a fabric of the same size on top of each square, then draw a line from corner to corner, sew with ¼” seam allowance on each side, and then cut through the line. Press the fabric open, then lay the opposite patterns on top of each other as shown in the video, then draw a line from corner to corner, sew on each side, and cut through the center. Press the fabric open and set it aside, then sew the strips together, and make the patches. Once done, sew the patches together according to the pattern guide, then assemble the whole block, and sew them together piece by piece. Sew the border around and you’re all done.
