Heal a Heart Quilt

On Friday, October 17th, my husband posed a challenge; create a quilt with a giant anatomically correct heart on it. The quilt would be a gift for our friend’s mom who recently was diagnosed with heart issues.

Never one to pass up a challenge and it would make great gift, I found a medical drawing of a heart and printed it across 16 sheets of paper that I assembled and turned into a pattern on Saturday morning. I scoured my stash for fabrics, but I usually buy 1/2 yard or smaller so I didn’t have anything big another for the bottom part of the heart.

After a trip to a local quilt shop I returned home with a variety of Fossil Fern colors for the heart and a blue subtlety striped fabric for the front and a heart print for the back. The quilt top and back were pieced and then sandwiched with the batting. I quilted it with straight lines following the stripes.

I traced the heart pattern onto Wonder Under, ironed it to the fabrics and cut out the heart pieces. After trimming the quilt, I placed the right side of the pattern up, with parchment paper over it. I removed the release papers and assembled the heart, fusing it together once every piece was in place.

I outline stitched around the heart three or four times and bound the quilt with the blue stripe fabric.

The quilt was completed less than 8 hours after the trip to the quilt shop! It was a fabulous way to spend a Saturday and so worth it to see the photos of our friend’s mom hugging the quilt later in the week.

This is the next quilt for our friends’ year of quilts. They love Halloween so I decided to go a bit crazy and piece together a haunted house with a few spooky figures peering out into the night. Around the house is a sky full of bats. The door is open, welcoming visitors to be frightened.

Around the house are 3 borders and l bound it with creepy eyes. It measures 60” x 60”.

On the back is a patchwork of various Halloween prints.
