Valentines Quilt Block - WIP

After tidying up my sewing room earlier this week, I came across a few fabrics that I really wanted to use. One collection I found was first Crush by Sweetwater. All I needed was a charm square pattern suitable for some Valentine's day themed fabric and I was ready to sew!

After my fun day of sewing from a pattern by Missouri Star Quilt Co., I thought I would look through their website to see what they had in free tutorials. I came across one of Jenny Doan's YouTube video tutorials and I quickly got to work. I laid out my charm squares, cut some background squares and sewed up as many blocks as I could before I ran out of charm squares. At the end of the day I had these:
The link to the instructions and video is here.

I really wasn't planning ahead when I made these, so I don't have any fabric picked out to make the sashing for the blocks but I was glad I got this far. I also did what Jenny suggested in the video - sew up the extra half-square triangles that get cut off the heart shapes.
