You can get the pattern for this beautiful patchwork heart called the Stitches from The Heart HERE>

It was a quick project and a fun one for sure!

I am always attracted to making patchwork hearts. My quilt patterns have been based on hearts ! You can check out my patterns linked at the end of this post for more hearty inspirations 😉

The heart shape has always been my favourite shape. I love the little curve elements of the heart shape and something about what it represents as well, I guess. 

For this pattern, I am using:

And just for the fun of it, I recorded a fun video from start to finish. If you like this kind of video, make sure you subscribe to my channel. I appreciate your support so much.

The mini quilt comes together pretty quickly. But the pattern also come with an instruction for a larger quilt size which can easily be a lap quilt or a baby quilt. 

Make sure you check the pattern out! It’s free by FQshop HERE> Stitches from The Heart HERE>

Anyway, if you are a heart shape lover too, and want to make more heart quilts and pillows, check out my patterns:

I Heart Quilt Pattern & Scrappy Heart Pillow

Both of these patterns are based on a heart block. 

Till next time, have fun quilting!



Today I am going to share with you a wonderful swap package I receive from Lynda , my swap partner assigned for this Very Cherry Swap.  Tina (emilyannkloset) started the swap over on instagram with hashtag #verycherryswap.

I am amira_littlemushroomcap in Instagram by the way.

On a lovely Monday holiday, I receive this bundle of package full of cherry goodness! I love all of them, especially the lip balm (I am a sucker for lip balm) and the pouch! oh and the cute socks! Truely, I love all of them, can’t really pick a favourite. Look at that cute pom pom ric rac on the pillow case. Just perfect.

I am very thankful to have such a lovely partner, Lynda and the efforts she puts in all the things she made here. It was all very lovely indeed.

In return, this is the package I sent her. I love this swap as this swap embraces that we have each other as swap partners.

All packed in a cherry bag I had saved from my last trip cherry picking last year. Another fun thing about this swap is that I squeal everytime I see anything cherry, knowing that I could include it in the swap package. So this bag was definitely one squeal!

Here are the things in the package:

The main one was the mini quilt made from simple granny squares in Lori Holts’ fabric.

A pin cushion made with fussy cut 1/2 inch hexies and super cute cherry tag I found when I was back in Malaysia :

She loves lady bug, so I bought lady bug button and stuck them onto the printable too. Made a diary so cherry with the same printable.

I print and cut out cupcake wrappers with the free printable available here.

Deco with printables

Made simple stickers from them too.

Made the mini quilt label with a bit of embroidery. Can you spot some cherries in the free motion quilting I did on this quilt?

The very cherry pouch, embelished with a cute lady bug zipper I found at the recent quilt & craft show.

The open wide pouch has a cherry tag to cover the end of the zipper. Fussy cut.
