Groove Is In The Heart



“Nothing makes a person happier than having a happy heart.” Celebrate all your favourite fabrics with this happy scrappy heart quilt that uses a mix of easy hand applique and machine piecing.

‘Groove Is In The Heart’ has a fresh, modern, vintage feel with lots of dots, checks, small geometrics, flowery florals and a few novelty prints for a whimsical touch. I always like to include a bird or two in my quilts. So perfectly pretty and cosy, the way a heart quilt should be, but then some other colour themes that I can imagine would be..
-A Valentine’s Dream – classic reds on low volume fabrics.
-Pretty Liberty fabrics on contrasting solids.
-Civil War beauties on shirting backgrounds.
-Bright popping colours on black/white backgrounds.
-Black and white hearts on an aqua background.
-30’s prints or feed sacks always bring smiles
-A colourful mish-mash of all colours, sometimes the more you throw in the better it looks.
