Assembling the Wall Hanging

Step 1 – Making the Half Square Triangles

First, pair up the following squares to make the half square triangles.

  • 3 pairs – 2 ¼” background squares with 2 ¼” small hearts squares
  • 1 pair – 3 ¼” medium heart square with 3 ¼” small heart square
  • 1 pair – 3 ¼” medium heart square with 3 ¼” background square
  • 1 pair – 4 ¼” background square with 4 ¼” medium heart square
  • 1 pair – 4 ¼” medium heart square with 4 ¼” large heart square
  • 4 pairs – 4 ¼” large heart squares with 4 ¼” background squares

Take one of the pairs and…

Draw a diagonal line on the back (wrong) side of the lighter fabric. This will be your sewing guide.

Next, line up the squares of fabric with front (right) sides facing each other.

Using a ¼ inch seam allowance, sew along both sides of the drawn diagonal line.

Cut down the center, along the drawn line. You will end up with two blocks that need to be pressed open.

Trim the blocks (sizes shown below) down so they measure the appropriate size. Repeat with rest of the pairs. Following this, you will have a total of 22 half square triangles.

Trimming Sizes For the Half Square Triangles
  • Half square triangles made out of the 2 ¼” squares should be trimmed to 1 ½”.
  • The ones made out of the 3 ¼” squares should be trimmed to 2 ½”.
  • The ones made out of the 4 ¼” squares should be trimmed to 3 ½”.
Step 2 – Assembling the Sections

The quilt gets assembled in sections. Then the sections get sewn together.

Section 1 Layout

Section 1 is the top section with the small heart. Lay out the pieces as shown. Sew together the center section first, then add the two outside pieces.

Section 2 Layout

Section 2 is most of the medium heart. Lay out the pieces as shown. Sew the center section first, then add the two outside pieces.

Section 3 Layout

Section 3 is mostly the large heart. Lay out as shown. Sew together the center section first and then add the outside strips.

Section 4 Layout

Section 4 finishes up the main part of the quilt. Lay out as shown. Sew together the center section first and then add the outside strips.

Then sew the four sections together

Step 3 – Adding the Borders

First, add the corner squares to both ends of the shorter border strips.

Second, add one of the longer border strips to the left side of the quilt. Repeat on the right side.

Third, add the shorter strips with the corner blocks to the top and the bottom of the quilt.

Lastly, press the finished quilt top.

Step 4 – Finishing the Stacked Hearts Valentine’s Day Quilt Pattern
  1. Lay your backing fabric on a long surface, with wrong side facing up.
  2. On top of that, lay your batting.
  3. Lay your quilt top on top with the right side facing up.
  4. Baste the layers together using your preferred basting method.
  5. Quilt as desired.
  6. Last, but not least, bind using your preferred method.
