Stitch up a Heart Quilt Pattern
from these Tempting Designs

Stitching up a unique heart quilt starts with finding the perfect pattern.

Pair of hearts

Here are shared many commercially available designs, along with several 'love' and 'heart' themed fabrics currently out in the market.

To complete your creation, you'll need a label right?

To that end, several heart quotations are listed at the end of this page to trigger your own creativity.

Welcome and enjoy!

A word about the colored-link buttons below

Every heart quilt pattern has a colored-link button at the end of the description that tells you which online store has the pattern and where clicking the link takes you.

Each link is an affiliate link, which means I make a small commission on the sale (without any increase in price to you).

These commissions help me continue to provide all the free content that you'll find on the Generations Quilt Patterns website.

IF you prefer to purchase from your local quilt store (if you're lucky enough to still have one) simply take down the pattern name and designer. Then give them a call directly to see if they carry it or if it's on order. 

I thank you for your continued support of this site.

Heart & love themed fabrics

We quilters know that when we're making a quilt for someone, there's a lot of warm thoughts and emotion that go into every stitch. There's a whole lotta love wrapped up in quilt-making.

Yep, it's a thing.

And there's nothing like adding 'heart' and 'love' fabrics to really gild the lily in your own heart quilt and top with a little extra love.

Here are some of these new fabrics for 2021 all currently available from Fat Quarter Shop. 

Remember, some fabrics will sell out over time.

Heart quotations

Decorative heart

We all label our quilts, right? 

Unfortunately, my own hand doesn't shoot up into the air with that question—usually because I hadn't really thought about a label until it was ready to be presented.


To help you avoid that quandary, consider the quotations below. Hopefully, something will be appropriate for your own gifting or give spark to your inspiration.

The author is shared when known.

A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles.
   ~ Unknown

One love. One heart. One destiny.
   ~ Bob Marley

Believe in your heart that you're meant to live a life full of passion, purpose, magic and miracles.
   ~ Roy T. Bennett

You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.

   ~ William W. Purkey

The human heart has hidden treasures, In secret kept, in silence sealed; The thoughts, the hopes, the dreams, the pleasures, Whose charms were broken if revealed.
   ~ Charlotte Bronte

A gentle heart is tied with an easy thread.
   ~ George Herbert

The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.
   ~ Helen Keller

If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart. I'll stay there forever.
   ~ Winnie the Pooh

i carry your heart with me ~ I carry it in my heart
   ~ e e cummings

If you carry joy in your heart, you can heal any moment
   ~ Carlos Santana

I know that love is ultimately the only answer to mankind's problems.
   ~ Martin Luther King Jr.
