|Block 24 - Patchwork Heart|
This week’s block will capture your heart – it is Block 24 ‘Patchwork Heart’. Not only does it nest a heart within a heart but it indulges every quilter’s passion for using up every last scrap of fabric.
|Scraps glorious scraps!|
I created the block using a single-fabric heart in the middle but you could patch this heart by cutting an extra four A pieces and stitching them together into two columns of two.
|Scraps coming together.|
What I particularly love about using scraps in this way is that it really doesn’t matter if your seams don’t match because of the scrappiness of the block – great if you are short of time or you can’t find your glasses!
Wouldn't this make a great addition to a Valentine project?

Next week we will be using more scraps (rectangles instead of squares) as we make the Night and Day log cabin block.
