Quilt as Desired.  

I quilted  straight vertical lines 1" apart around the perimeter of the heart.  I quilted straight horizontal lines 1" apart in the center of the heart.  And I quilted diagonal lines in the nine patches.  Even though I quilted it on my longarm, it's very do-able on your domestic machine as well.


For the binding I used 4 strips 2 1/2" x WOF.  

It is a super easy quilt to make in no time at all.  When you make your quilt, please send me a picture via email to dorisquiltingqueen at yahoo dot com or post on my Facebook page or my Instagram and tag with #ninehearts and/or #quiltingqueenonline.  I love to see what you've made.
