To Boston with Love - Block Pattern

There are no words to describe what tragic events have unfolded in Boston. Our quilting community wants to send love and hope to the people of Boston and The Vancouver MQG initiated a project to do just that - To Boston With Love.

Our local guild Emerald Coast Modern Quilt Guild is also participating, I wanted to draft a block to share that said 'Love', 'Hope' and 'Strength'; also I wanted to combine the American spirit in some way.

Heart for Boston is a 5x5 inch paper pieced block

The pattern is here Heart for Boston, designed on 8.5" by 11" paper - when printing make sure to uncheck the 'fit to page' box. (this is a PDF file that you may use - but not for profit)
I also ask if you share please be courteous and link back to this post, thanks!

For more information on paper piecing see this tutorial by Fresh Lemons

with boarders added to make 6"x 8" for the banner

So grab your scraps and have fun and share the love!!!

If you make a heart block please show it off on the LaBellaColori flickr group, I would love to see them.


  1. Hey - very nice block design. I love the incorporation of the the US flag in the heart. And how very fun to see someone from Emerald Coast linking up!! We just moved from Niceville to Colorado last summer, and I've really been missing the beach there for the last few weeks. :D

    1. Thanks!! Oh I bet Colorado is beautiful!! I wish I visited the beaches here more than I get to, life always seems to get in the way of fun :)

  2. Thanks for sharing this block. I wasn't able to print it out correctly. Tried 2 times, but on my computer, it didn't show "fit to page." I will get out my graph paper and see if I can draw it out. Lovely idea, and so sad about the tragic events in Boston.

    1. Celia, So sorry your having problems -you can try downloading the file and then print from your computer not the website. Or email me you email address and I will email you the PDF file. Also i noticed your a no-reply blogger see here to change that

      Hope this helps!!
