Improvise Heart Block Tutorial

This post updated January 12, 2021


and working out from a small corner square, 
make as many blocks as you desire.  
For this color combination use red, pink, and purple scraps. 

 Trim to 8" square. 

 Cut rectangles 8 x 2 1/2" of red patterned fabric.  
You will require 2 rectangles for each of your blocks. 

Cut corner squares of cream colored fabric approx 2 x 2".  
This does not have to be accurate as you will see in the next photo.  

Sew the corners on at random diagonals as in the above photo.  
Looking closely you will see the stitching lines in the photo.   


 Press corners open and trim. 

 Cut cream colored 2 1/2" squares.  
You will require 1 for each of your blocks. 

 Assemble your improvised heart block.  
Sew together using a 1/4" seam allowance. 

The end result is a beautiful 10" block.  


Maybe I can have this quilt done for Valentine's Day!   

My unfinished projects are piling high - can anyone relate?
