Today I’m sharing a scrappy Infinite Hearts quilt. I have so many quilts that need to be posted so I’m focusing on the heart quilts with Valentine’s Day just around the corner.
I made this fun scrappy Blue Infinite Hearts quilt during the quilt along last year. It is made entirely from my scrap bins. I love sewing up these super scrappy quilts and using only the scrap bins.
The hearts are blue scraps and the background is all low volume scraps.
Infinite Hearts is available in the Quilty Love pattern shop. You can view all of the Quilty Love heart patterns here.
Infinite Hearts Quilt Pattern
Infinite Hearts is the third heart quilt in the Quilty Love heart quilt pattern series. This is a fun and scrappy friendly heart quilt pattern. These heart quilt patterns started a few years back with the intention of making a cute heart quilt just in time for Valentine’s Day that was also very stash friendly.
The Infinite Hearts quilt pattern has a few different options. Make a super scrappy version like this one using your scrap stash. Make a scrappy version using fat quarters and a solid background. Or make a four color version using just four different fabrics.
The pattern includes all three options.
The Infinite Hearts quilt pattern includes lots of quilt sizes:
- Baby Size
- Small Throw
- Medium Throw (Shown in this blog post)
- Large Throw
- Twin size bed quilt
Besides being scrappy friendly, Infinite Hearts can also use the following pre-cuts:
- Fat eighths
- Fat quarters
- 1/4 yards
- 2.5″ x WOF strips or jelly roll strips
Jelly Roll friendly heart quilt pattern
Infinite Hearts is jelly roll friendly! You can use 2.5 inch strips for this cute heart quilt. A jelly roll quilt is usually super versatile and means you can use an assortment of pre-cuts in place of the strips.
Scrap buster heart quilt pattern
I really try to design these heart quilts around the scrap stash or fabric stash since they release in January. I find it so satisfying to make a quilt completely from scraps like this one. My favorite thing to do do is to dig through the scrap bins, press those fabrics and cut from them. I find it so relaxing.
For this scrappy Infinite Hearts quilt, I used an assortment of blues and aquas. Those are the two colors I usually have the most scraps of.
Infinite Hearts Self Paced quilt along
Each year we have a quilt along for the new heart quilt pattern. This year we are doing Patchwork Hearts. So Infinite Hearts was the quilt along last year. You can still sign up to receive all of the information that went out during this quilt along here:
By signing up you can also download this cute tracking sheet and keep track of how many heart blocks you have made as you sew this quilt together. That sheet is fun to use even if you aren’t necessarily participating in the quilt along 🙂
You can also download a coloring page to plan out your quilt when you sign up for the self paced quilt along.
Scrappy Heart Blocks
Before I sewed this scrappy Infinite Hearts quilt up I tested a few blocks using my scrap stash. You can see the fun rainbow hearts that I made above.
This quilt would be super cute all scrappy but with a rainbow of scrappy hearts. I’m actually making a similar quilt using this years Patchwork Hearts quilt. It will be made using low volume scraps as the background like this one and then each heart will be a rainbow of color.
For this scrappy heart quilt I choose low volume prints that are all brighter white colors. In other scrappy quilts I’ve mixed in ivory and grey but for this one I stuck with only white background low volume fabrics. I like how cohesive it comes out that way.
Long Arm Quilting
This scrappy Infinite Hearts quilt was long arm quilted by Vintage Stitch. She actually finished the binding for me too! Jenae offers binding services along with her long arm quilting and let me tell you… it’s like magic getting that quilt back completely finished!
Binding and Backing fabric
The binding on this scrappy blue heart quilt is a navy blue gingham by Bonnie and Camille.
The backing is a Blossoms wide back in light grey. Blossoms is by the Tattooed quilter for Riley Blake.
Ambitious beginner/ Intermediate quilt pattern
The only thing that makes this heart block tricky is getting that perfect 1/4 inch on the bottom of the heart point. If you sign up for the self paced QAL there are videos included that might help. You can access all of the quilt along video instruction here.
