Crazy Quilted Heart Instructions — 13 Comments

  1. What a beautiful gift. There’s nothing better than a big does of love when going through a trying time. I wish a very speedy recovery for your friend.

  2. It’s a lovely pattern and the story that goes with it truly touches my heart!

    And, I know all about grandma’s and how special they are. I woke up this morning dreaming about mine (now passed almost 4 years) and it was so VERT real. To this day I keep things she gave me in plastic because they still smell like her and I don’t want to forget.

    God bless grammas!

  3. Your quilted heart story really touched my heart. You truly are an amazing woman to have such a big heart from everything you went through growing up and so lucky to have such a wonderful Gramma. I love the heart pattern and plan on making one for each of my grandkids…thanks for sharing such an awesome pattern. Many blessings to you and your family. 🙂


  4. OMG! You made me cry! What a very touching way to let someone you care about know that you are thinking of them. Thank you for sharing your story.

  5. I love crazy quilting and often make crazy quilted hearts but the sentiment behind your design makes it very special – almost as if the giver has given a piece of his/her heart to the recipient! Very lovely. 🙂

  7. What a wonderful loving expression. We have recently lost our Mother and several years ago her best friend. There several of us including life long friends – – our Mothers were friends when in collage. I have a lot of their collective fabrics, they were quilter too. I now plan to make each family member a pin cushion using those fabrics . Thank you for this great way to memorialize our Mothers.

  8. What a touching story.
    So often one does not know what to do at a sad time in others lives; this is a wonderful thing–so simple and yet so meaningful to those that receive.
    I have no Grandma/ or Mom alive–but I do have scraps/ buttons and trim from their sewing. I plan to make my own “memory heart” and one for my sister

  10. This is such a wonderful heartfelt gift applicable in many situations. I will begin making some immediately. With this lovely idea size would not matter; very small or even a full pillow would have special meaning. Thank You.

  11. I know this has been over 6 years since you originally posted this quilt pattern, but I had to send you a great big thank you for sharing this. I work with a local hospice and having this pattern to share with the families we deal with will be greatly appreciated. I look forward to making these hearts that will be kept in our gift room at the office to be shared with the families when our patients die. In the past we have made bears using material from clothing that the deceased wore and that would work for these hearts as well. Bless you for sharing this beautiful gift. I look forward to sewing many of these hearts in the years to come.
