Quilt ALong # 29 Add a heart for a new look

Quilt Along #29  not only is a review of 5 fmq patterns, but it included an addition of a shape to the pattern, thereby creating a whole new look to the design. 

The shape we added this week is a heart, however, any shape that fit your project or fabric pattern could be added.   If you look closely at the loopy line pattern, my last design I added to this sample, I added little loops to the bottom of the hearts making it look like a little bow at the bottom of the heart.   I do like this addition to the hearts in the loopy design.

Thanks Leah!


  1. Your FMQ looks great - I love how your loops look like leaves under the hearts. It almost makes it look like a heart flower. :)

  2. I think that the little details that seem to happen during free motion quilting is my favortie part of the whole process, kind of like a 'aha' moment.
