Make Multiple Heart Quilts

I love making heart themed quilts. I had an idea to make a smaller one to make several projects, so I thought I'd make multiple hearts to save me time from cutting fabric. I was inspired to make this from Pinterest. I saw it a couple of years ago and worked on figuring out the measurements. That's one thing I enjoy about quilting... the math! And that's why I usually work things out on a math notebook so I know how best to cut fabric. 

Here's how I make multiple heart quilts:


11 fabric colors (I love making rainbows!)

Star Wars Themed Quilt Cover for a Bench

This quilt cover project has been on my to-do list since 2022! I decided to just bite the bullet and start it last January. I thought I could finish it in two to three weeks, but no, it stretched to almost six weeks. I got busy doing other home projects. 

The design is quite simple, but making twelve pieces of 4x4 squares took awhile to make. I also decided to use the QAYG technique since the main quilt cover measures 58" x 44". I basically made a blanket with flaps. I left the flap open since the bench doubles as storage space. It's where I keep things that need to be further sorted (haha). 

Here's how I made the quilted cover:


fabric with design (I used a Star Wars themed fabric which I got from Spotlight in Singapore)

four solid colors fabric (orange, yellow, blue, green)

black fabric (for sashing and binding)

backing fabric 



Main Cover - 58" x 44" 

Flaps: 20" x 12"
