Good morning friends and Happy Valentines Day!
I am so excited to finally share more about the Hearts at Home quilt along! This has been on my mind for some time and I am thrilled to have so many people joining in! I also can’t wait to see all the pretty fabrics everyone uses!
You can find the Hearts at Home quilt in my Etsy shop here. Be sure to follow along here on my blog for updates and announcements for the quilt along starting April 6th!
I have always really loved log cabin blocks so designing this quilt was a lot of fun for me…and the hearts add that little extra bit of sweetness that every quilt needs! For me, Hearts at Home has always represented the quilt you cuddle up with at night, the gift you give to a friend in need, and a reminder of love in your home. Each quilt I design has a story and this most definitely came from a place of love.
Hearts at Home is a Jelly Roll quilt that also uses additional yardage to complete. For my quilts I used two matching Jelly Rolls, but mixing two different Jelly Rolls would be stunning as well. I always say as long as you’re using fabrics that you love then the quilt will turn out beautiful! You will also note that I used all pink fabrics for my hearts, but feel free to go outside of the box and use any other color you love! Any color heart is still a beautiful heart!
This quilt along is going to be very casual and fun. My hope is that everyone truly enjoys the process and has fun sewing something they’ll love and cherish forever! Maybe you’re keeping this one for yourself of maybe you’re gifting it to a loved one…either way it’s going to amazing! I’m posting information now so that everyone can plan ahead and arrange their schedules!
The Hearts at Home quilt along will go five weeks from April 6th to May 11th and will take place on Instagram using the hashtag #heartsathomeqal. You’ll want to make sure you’re following me here on my blog for updates and announcements. I also have some fun prizes I’m lining up as well because who doesn’t love prizes!?
I used our Walkabout fabric collection for Hearts at Home and I will be using Summer Sweet for the quilt along. There are so many different variations of this quilt I would love to make and I’ll probably end up making all of them. One that I really want to make for both my girls is an all red and pink version as shown below! There are so many color combo options! So many decisions!
I hope you love making Hearts at Home! Be sure to pick up a pattern here and follow my blog for updates as the quilt along gets closer! You can find me on Instagram as @chelsistratton where I will post updates and announcements as well!
