Free Quilled Valentine Heart Pattern

I wanted to try something that is different, yet in some cosmic way part of my everyday life. Just for you and Valentine's Day, this is an unconventional spin on the traditional heart, as inspired by a design on my bedspread (thus part of my everyday life). I actually used this on a scrapbook page.

  • 2 - 6 in ( cm) loose coil
Non-traditional Heart Shape

  • 1 - 12 in ( cm) strip Fold Strip in half

  • Curl approximately 1/2 in ( cm) of each end outward

Creating the Heart shape

  • Glue the loose coils to the strip to create the curved upper heart (you must look closely at the photo)

  • Do not glue the curled ends until you complete the next step

  • 1 - 4 in ( cm) - V-Scroll shape

  • 1 - 6 in ( cm) - V-scroll shape

  • Place the 6 in ( cm) inside the 4 in ( cm) strip and glue the ends together

  • Now glue the curled ends to the pointed end of the V-scrolls

Accent the heart

  • 1 - 4 in ( cm) teardrop

  • 1 - 3 in ( cm) teardrop1 - 2 in ( cm) tight roll

Arrange as shown

Remember, inspiration can some from anywhere, all you have to do is be open to it
I used this heart on a Christmas scrapbook page I was making

These colors would work equally well for Christmas or Valentines or your Anniversary
