6 inch Heart Block
This heart block is perfect for putting into a scrap quilt or to use as a label on the back of your quilt. You will need the following:
One 4" square heart fabric
Two 3.5" squares heart fabric
One 4" square background fabric
Four 1.5" squares background fabric
Take your 4" squares and layer them together right sides together. Draw a diagonal line from one corner to the opposite corner. Sew 1/4" seam on both sides of the line you drew. Cut apart on the drawn line.Press one of these pieces towards the heart fabric and the other towards the background. This makes the final assembly of the block easier as the seams will butt up against each other nice and easy and less bulk at the seams.
