Ladies, I have changed the Lonely Hearts swap to see if more of you would be interested.

Comment by Kathy Gurgone on August 9, 2018 at 1:02pm

There is no pattern or parameters for the hearts.  The are not meant to line up exactly, you just try to cut the as close on the center line as possible.  Some people do a single heart, some people do a heart within a heart.  The look is really cool once you get them all together.  I will go ahead and start the sign-up and when I get a chance I will post a picture of a couple of blocks so that you get the idea of how your blocks will look.

I have seen this done both in hearts and leaves. The variable of the different heart shapes and colors is part of the charm of this block. It makes for a fun, funky, unique look to the block! Kathy is right the more variety the better! I am in!

Kathy-this sounds interesting -- I will keep watching the posts but I am a definite maybe if this gets off the ground....

Comment by Riana Noyes on August 9, 2018 at 8:27am

Kathy, would there be a pattern for the center heart  shape/ size parameters ? Because a short wide style would hardly fit up to long & skinny, the center to dip or bottoms could be quite far off...or is that the idea,lol?

P.S. These are not necessarily Red and White hearts, they can be any color heart on any color background.  The fussier the heart and background, the better.

Would any of you like to do a lonely hearts swap?  How this works is a little different from how a normal swap works.  It works like this:  Everyone starts out with (12) 13x13" blocks, and as near as possible, centers a heart of any color or type to the center of the block.  Then you cut the blocks in half (top to bottom)  You send in 6 rights and 6 lefts and you get back 6 rights and 6 lefts.  Those are then sewn to the right and lefts of the other 6 blocks which you kept.  So you will end up with 12 blocks with half your heart and half of the other participants hearts. I hope I explained this clearly enough, but it is a very cool looking swap quilt when completed.  If enough of you are interested then I will start a new swap due by the end of January.  Just let me know.
