Sooooooo……. Shabby Fabrics has asked a few bloggers to come up with some fun projects using these awesome Shabby Shapes.

You want to see what I made???

Shabby Hearts

This “Not So Shabby Hearts” quilt finishes at 30″ x 38.5″ and is an easy baby quilt project.

I used these super cute X-Large 5″ pin dot hearts!

(and I am giving away a set so make sure to enter at the bottom of this post!!!)

Laser-Cut Heart Set -  X-Large Pindots

Here is how you can whip up this super cute baby quilt in one day alone….

What you will need:


(12) 10″ squares of your background fabric….I used a white layer cake.


(2) packages of the X-Large 5″ pindot hearts. They come 12 in a package.

(4) 2.5″ x WOF strips for your binding….I used 4 Jelly Roll strips.

1.5 yds for backing fabric.


Shabby Hearts

Peel your heart away from the backing film. Gently so you don’t fray the edges.

Shabby Hearts

Line your hearts up, 2 to a square about 1″ from the edges on the right and top/bottom sides. Then press with a dry iron for 5-7 sec to fuse the hearts to your background fabric.

To keep the line up the same for each block, I stacked mine on top of each other so I could see the hearts on the previous square to help me line it up quick and easy!

Shabby Hearts

Once you are done with all your squares, you need to top-stitch down your hearts(if you don’t they will eventually fall off). I used a simple straight stitch about 1/8″ around the edges, but you can use a blanket stitch or a zig-zag if you like.

Next, sew all your squares together in a 3 across x 4 down lineup.

Bam! Your top is done.

Shabby Hearts

I used an all over stipple for my free motion quilting design.

Shabby Hearts

My backing was a simple gray pin dot.

Using 4 white jelly roll strips I made my binding and applied it using THIS TUTORIAL.

Easy peasy! Give these Shabby Shapes a try, you won’t be sorry:)
