Valentine Quilt Inspiration

multi-colored heart shaped confetti

It is never too early to start thinking about hearts, flowers, X's and O's, and all that goes with Valentine's Day. It will be here before we know it (exactly 8 weeks!). That is just enough time to get a couple of projects ready because hearts are good all year long. Personally, I am a "heart junkie" and have all sorts of heart-themed objects around the house but I don't have a Valentine Quilt. Guess I have plenty of inspiration here to get going. Christina is also a "heart junkie" and has made several Emily Dennis Quilty Love heart patterns throughout the years.

Take a look at some of these fabulous quilt patterns. There are blocks, placemats, table runners, and various-sized quilts. Please visit the designer's links and stores to show your support. Be sure to follow them on social media because they offer more than hearts (We checked! LOL).

Heart Gems quilt pattern by Emily Dennis

Emily Dennis from Quilty Love has the Heart Gems quilt pattern. It can be done with scraps in the same color or scrappy and look beautiful either way.

Heart Gems is a stash-friendly heart quilt.  Quarter square triangles create dimension and movement in this fun and modern quilt.  Use fat quarters or your scrap stash to sew up this heart quilt. PDF Pattern includes a bonus simple heart option.  Skip the quarter-square triangles and sew together a quick and easy version.

Bloom and Heart mini quilt patterns by Wendy Parent

"These quilt duets show a synergy of love and nature that is undeniable. A bloom nestled in a heart's embrace. A heart blossoming in a bloom's center. Celebrate the dance of hearts and flowers with these patterns."

The Bloom and Heart and Heart and Bloom designs can be used as blocks, mug rugs, or made into a full pattern. Wendy Parent of Everbloom Quilts has them individually or as a duo on her website.

Exploding Heart quilt pattern by Slice of Pi quilts

This Exploding Heart pattern just makes my heart burst with joy. The pattern makes a generous 72" x 72" throw quilt and is fat-quarter-friendly! You can also use the Accu-Quilt cutter dies to make it easy.

Laura from Slice of Pi Quilts released this pattern a couple of years ago, but it's a favorite with many, many quilters. Will it become yours?

My Valentine Panel Quilt by Riley Blake Designs and Echo Park Paper Compnay

Riley Blake Designs has just released the My Valentine Panel Quilt FREE downloadable pattern using the My Valentine collection by Echo Park Paper Company. From bouquets and tossed hearts, to plaid and watercolor hearts, your valentine will swoon over the collection just released in November 2023.

Wild at Heart curve-piecing quilt pattern by Heather Black of Quiltachusetts

Another newly released pattern is Wild at Heart by Heather Black of Quiltachusetts. And how adorable is this?!

This sweet sampler quilt mixes contemporary and traditional in a heart design. It is a great way to learn a couple of new curve-piecing techniques of square-in-a-circle and half-circle stripes.

Hearts Intertwined mat and table runner pattern by Sandy Gervais

How fun is the Hearts Intertwined table runner and mat! What a great way to dress up your table or counter for a special dinner.

Sandy Gervias of Pieces of My Heart writes a great pattern with half-square triangles and strip piecing.

Hello Hearts quilt pattern by Bonjour Quilts

Kirsty of Bonjour Quilts says, "This pattern looks great as written -- with all the hearts matching -- but can also be made with scrappy hearts. You can clear out your scrap pile for this one and create a sea of different colored hearts. Or use a stack of fat quarters from your stash to sew up a scrappy, yet color-themed quilt."

Hello Hearts can be used all year long to share love both in the hearts and in all the love sewn in.

Pride and Prejudice heart quilt

Joy Martin of The Makings of Joy has taken her inspiration from a Jane Austen novel to write the Pride & Prejudice quilt pattern.

Just looking at the design brings thoughts of an earlier time and the love of literature.

Libs Elliott New Waves heart quilt

The New Waves Quilt by Libs Elliott is such a versatile pattern to use with a colorful spectrum of fabrics. So many choices!

This pattern uses the Jaybird Quilts Hex 'n More ruler making it easy to cut, trim, and sew.

The Happy Hearts Quilt from Mandi Persell of Sewcial Stitch is another pattern you can make in one colorway or a colorful version. It comes in 3 sizes and Mandi even has kits available. I see this in a fun ombre colorway.

Maybe you are into Foundation Paper Piecing. The Heart Lens Block by Sarah of Full Bobbin Designs has so many possibilities when it comes to color.

The pattern comes with several sizes of blocks so it would be easy to incorporate in any size project.

The Home Heart Quilt is a design inspired by Dreamland Quilting Emily's favorite place in the world, full of her favorite people in the world, her home.

This pattern is a beginner-friendly pattern featuring a block-based design set with sashing. You may have seen a different version in the Sweater Weather quilt but the quilt pattern has different dimensions.
