    Pictures of Quilts Designed with Florals and Hearts

    All of the quilts in this photo gallery are designed with a floral theme or use hearts in their layouts -- sometimes both.

    I absolutely love floral quilts, so am always excited when a member of our online quilting community submits a photo with that theme. Bold florals, teeny florals, watercolor layouts -- it doesn't matter because I absolutely love them all. And I admit to picking up at least one floral fabric every single time I shop.

    If you love hearts, take a look at my Heart Quilt & Quilt Block Patterns.

    Kay says: This quilt was inspired by a circular rose garden at my farm in Temora NSW. I used a giant kaleidoscope block as the center feature and added borders. It is queen size quilt for my Mum's bed.

    Young at Heart says: I embroidered these blocks over a 2-year period. They were my vacation and "stay awake in front of TV" handiwork. Some of the designs were from books that I bought, whilst I designed others from photographs after a trip through Central Australia. The early blocks were mostly candlewicked, but I became more adventurous as I progressed. I was especially pleased with the results of the Grevillea and Waratah. The quilt is queen size, machine quilted on my Janome, all cotton with bamboo wadding.

    Two Hearts in Love Quilt

    Two Hearts in Love Quilt. Quilt by Riverduk

    Pictures of Hearts Quilts

    From Riverduk: This is my first quilt and it was made to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, on Nov 10th 2009, hence the 30 hearts. My wife loves quilting and I thought that this would be a unique way to show her just how much I am still in love with her.

    She had no idea that I have been working on this for the past few months, but there have been one or two close calls. I recently had to make some lame excuse for having my shed iron (used for RC aero modeling) in the house one night when she got home from work (sorry ladies, but I don't do ironing as a rule).

    There have been some frustrations along the way, but as I sat back and looked at it last night, ready to go to the quilter, I am more than pleased with the end result for a first-timer. No, it's not perfect, but I am very proud of this project. The yellow around the outside is not part of the quilt, it is a rug I used to support the quilt for the photo. Size is approx 40 x 48 inches.

    Thank you to whoever designed and placed the heart block pattern on this site, it was a great first timer pattern, clear instructions that were easy to follow, for this novice, Happy Quilting.

    Note from Janet: Great job on your quilt! If I remember correctly, the block was designed by Kate for a past event in the forum. I wrote the instructions using her guidelines and it's been a very popular pattern.
