4 Hours 4 Symmetry

Is that too long?
Heart block
I've spent the whole morning trying to design a simple and quick heart block. None of them worked out until hour 3.5. The striped fabric had a LOT to do with my struggles. I think this is the one.

(P.S. I know there are already heart block patterns out there. I think I felt a desire to reinvent the wheel, but that feeling is gone now.)

Pin It!

Totally worth it! Love your stripey heart block. Will there be more of them? What are you making with the heart block?

It looks like it was worth it to me. The block looks great!

I like how it came out. The stripes are perfectly matched. I think we all go through that reinventing the wheel process at some point. The end result is great!
