|Place in My Heart Quilt Block Pattern|
|Half-Hearted Mug Rug Pattern|
|Place in my Heart with Pinwheel Inset Block|
Initially I was going to make a bed runner. However, the blocks are so quick to put together that I have decided to make a full size bed quilt using the Place-in-my-Heart blocks some of my scrappy BAD blocks and 2” sashing (in Kona ‘snow’).

So if you have some little blocks that you don’t know what to do with this is the pattern for you. (If your blocks are smaller than 4” (finished size) just add a border to bring them up to size. This is what I have done with Carol Doak’s little 3” paper-pieced blocks – which I love making by-the-way.)

However, if you don’t have any little blocks not to worry - the pattern includes instructions for three patchwork inset blocks (nine-patch, heart and pinwheel) together with two appliqué inset blocks (Folk Art Tulip and Flower Heart).

To date I have made ten Place-in-my-Heart blocks and I am loving them. They are quick and easy to make and look good when laid out together. The hardest part is choosing which of my BAD blocks to use as they all have a place in my heart!

p.s. I forgot to mention that this pattern is just $1.99 (as are all my patterns) and is available in my Craftsy store. I shall also be adding some Patchsmith inset pattern packs throughout the year so you can start collecting.
