Make an “Inside Out Heart” Wall Hanging Quilt with Jenny Doan of Missouri Star (Video Tutorial)

Hi everybody, it’s Jenny from the Missouri
Star Quilt Co. And I’ve got a fun project for you today. We’re calling this Inside
Out Heart. And it’s a darling little wall hanging with this cute little heart on it.
It’s 36 by 36. A great little size to give to someone to express your love to them or
just to hang on the front of your house. I mean it’s just such a great little quilt.
So to make this quilt what you’re going to need is one packet of ten inch squares.
And we have used Kona cottons by Robert Kaufman, Wild Berry Palette so it’s all these pretty
pinks and purples. And you’re going to need some background fabric as well. Now for this
you’re going to actually just need 14 of these color ones. So 14 and eight of these.
And so, so actually this is a great scrap project because you can use any fabric you
have. And, I mean it just comes together so quick and easy because we’re using our easy
half square triangles. So two of your sets are going to be just like
this. They’re going to be color and white. Then you’re going to make six sets that
are color, color. So you’re just going to choose two colors that you like in here. You’re
going to match them together. And you’re going to sew all the way around the outside.
So let me show you how I do that. Let’s go to the sewing machine with this. And we’re
just going to sew a quarter of an inch all the way around the outside. So I’m just
going to, I’ve lined them up. I sew right off the edge. I flip it around and I go down
the other side. And you’re going to do this on all four sides. And then what we’re going
to do is we’re just going to cut this diagonally, two directions. So I’m going to bring my
five by 15 ruler. And I’m going to lay it side to side just like this. Match them on
the corners. So when you’re sewing around this, sometimes you might get a little pleat
right there in the corner. It won’t matter because we’re going to cut right through
it. So we’re just going to cut across here like this. And we’re going to cut across
here like this, just like that. Now we’re going to bring out our little
trimmer tool. You’re going to want to square your blocks. And if you’re using the clearly
perfect slotted trimmer, which is the one I love, you just leave your blocks, just like
this. You don’t even iron them yet. You’re going to lay your seam line on their seam
line like this. Match them up. And even though, you know mine comes out a little bit. It’s
not perfect. It doesn’t match up exactly. But as long as it’s close that’s good.
And then we’re going to trim off these little edges. And we’re going to square these to
6 ½. So I’m going to do this. And I’m going to do that to all my squares. So we’re
literally going to square all of them. And just line up those lines. Do your little dog
ears, trim your sides. And we’re going to do this all, all four of them. And I have
a bunch done over here so let’s just go ahead and iron these. And what you’re going
to do is you’re going to decide which color is your darkest. And my purple is darker.
You’re going to set that. Set that seam and you’re going to roll that back. You
want your darker, the seam to be on the darker side of your fabric. So we say we like to
press to the dark side. Alright so then you’re going to make a stack
of these. And again remember you’re going to have six that are color and color and two
that are color and white. The color and white are done exactly the same way. You just put
two of them together like this, sew all the way around, cut it diagonally both directions
and trim them up to 6 ½. Alright so when you’re ready to put your star together.
So when you’re ready to put your heart together, sorry. So when you’re ready to put your
heart together you’re just wanna gonna, wanna gonna? So when you’re ready to put
this together you’re going to need your color and your white blocks. You’re going
to need your color and your color blocks. And for the center of that heart you’re
going to need 6 ½ inch squares. And you’re going to need six of those. So they happen
right here. There’s four across. And then there’s two down like this. Now all these
ones where there’s an angle, that’s the color and the white block. And so this block
out here is all the border. And then your color and whites form the shape of the heart.
And so it just is really fun to put together. There will be a diagram to show you. But basically
you can follow along with the quilt behind me. And you can see how these go together.
So we’ve got, where the darks come in here and they kind of form their own little pattern
right there. And they’re going to go together this way. And basically we have one, two,
three, four, five, six, across and one, two, three, four, five, six, down. So it makes
a little wall hanging that is 36 by 36. So it’s a great little size. I have another one to show you here that’s
done with batiks. And it’s really a great little scrap project because you only need
14 colored squares and eight of your background color and it makes this darling little heart.
So I hope you have fun with this. I hope you can bring some joy and love to someone that
you know. You could put four of them together and make a big quilt. So there’s lots of
love out there. And we hope you enjoyed this tutorial on the Inside Out Heart from the
Missouri Star Quilt Co.

    Much of the reason I love Jenny is that she isn't afraid to show all of us that she isn't perfect. When I began to sew my MIL taught me, and she is 92 yrs young and a beautiful sewist. She told me right off the bat that I would make mistakes and that was okay. My DH's GMA always said that if something handmade didn't have a mistake in it somewhere it wasn't made with love. At first, I thought GMA's comment was strange……because "I" was going to be that "PERFECT" sewist….RIGHT…..I learned quite fast that we all make mistakes….that's what seam rippers were created for!
    My dear MIL was right…..I have made a lot of garments/pillow cases (I learned that from Jenny!) and now quilts….and of course, there are
    little mistakes in everything I make…and that's okay…and the BIGGEST compliment to that is that someone as popular and loved as Jenny shows everyone that WE ALL make mistakes….and that's okay….we are all human!!!!
    I couldn't attend this years Birthday Bash…(I have never been) but maybe "this next year"!!!
    I really want to meet Jenny! I think my DH is afraid to go to Hamilton as I have hinted about retiring close to there!!! LOL!
