It’s hard to ignore that Valentines Day is almost upon us. But even if you’re not into the romantic or commercial aspects of Valentines Day, it’s still a great day to celebrate and embrace one of our favorite symbols – the heart.
The heart symbol always reminds us of the tender connection we have to the people and the things that hold a special place in our hearts and are precious to us; those people and things that continually give us that wonderful feeling that makes our hearts dance and sing. So as a timely gift for Valentines day – from my heart to yours – and as a way to say thank you to my readers, students and customers, please enjoy this free downloadable quilt pattern called “Dancing Hearts”.
I designed this pattern especially to showcase the decorative stitches on your sewing machine because using decorative stitches is one of my favorite ways to work with fabric and thread. If you’ve never used decorative stitches before, you can find my favorite tips for using them here, and also lots of inspiration in the Creative Cloth eBook Bundle which you can find here in my Etsy store.
