Free-Motion Quilting Ideas: How to Quilt Hearts Free Tutorial

Hi there everyone.  With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I thought I’d make up another free PDF tutorial and video for you guys.  This one is on how to quilt hearts!  I love quilting hearts because they are very forgiving and have a lot of movement.

Here are some examples of hearts from portions of my Free-Motion Quilting Idea Sampler.  (You can join the Facebook group for the Sampler, Book, and App where we talk quilting here.)

I like to put pebbles in the areas between the hearts to fill in any awkward gaps and add interest.

And here is a video so you can see how I actually quilted these out on the BERNINA Q 24…

Before I had the Q 24 I quilted this on my BERNINA domestic machine all the time so you CAN do this!

If you are like me you like to have a visual reference close by while you are quilting, so I also made you a free handout.  To get the pdf delivered to your inbox click here or on the graphic below. (But don’t worry, if you are already on my list for updates it won’t send you a duplicate emails – it just needs your email to send the pdf.)

I hope you all have lovely holidays!

    1. Hi Ilse,
      I just did it myself and worked. Maybe you were trying at the same time I updated or something? Try again and, if it doesn’t work, contact me via the contact page on my website and we will get it worked out.

  3. I requested the free heart FMQ design on 5/23 and still have not received it. How long does it take to get it in my email.

    1. You should get it immediately because it is computer generated. Check your spam folder. If you don’t get it contact me using the contact form.

  4. Did not get the heart pattern
