Patchsmith Sampler Block 24 - Patchwork Heart

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!
Almost there.

Wouldn't this make a great addition to a Valentine project?
Block 24 complete.

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

Until then I look forward to seeing your versions of the Patchwork Heart (#block24patchworkheart) over on Instagram or in the Flickr Group.  Just tag me (@thepatchsmith).
