Feels Like Home

The Feels Like Home Collection by Amber Johnson is the perfect scrappy collection for the Love Yourself First Quilt!

Love Yourself First Quilt

Hello Quilters! I’m Karlyn of Charlie Bear Quilts, bringing you the sweetest new pattern for a little summer sewing. The Love Yourself First quilt was inspired by the importance of self-love. Now, I know we hear this all the time…. but daily reminders help keep our minds healthy. The kindness we show others is something we don’t always extend to ourselves. Time to scrap negative self-talk and acknowledge the messy-but-necessary steps that keep us moving forward. It should be celebrated! I know I’m preaching to the choir here, but isn’t celebration the most fun when it involves quilting?!! At the end of all that therapeutic sewing you will have a quilty reminder that the relationship you have with yourself affects all the others. Get the pattern here for 15% OFF until July 6th: Love Yourself First Quilt.

The Glamour Shots;)

I was lucky enough to take my Love Yourself First Quilt up to Riding Mountain National Park to stay at Black Pine Lodge with Bower Bird Stays. It’s such a picturesque and private location with views of a creek and forested hills. Featuring 4 bedrooms and a large dining area, there are so many spaces to enjoy.

The wide variety of graphic prints in this collection bring the coziest vibes!
Background: Cream Sketchy Leaves

Let’s Make a Block!

I like to cut all my fabric up, then mix and match my favourite colour pairings.

STAGE 1: The Heart Units

The fun part is mixing and matching all the fun patterns!

STAGE 2: HST Units

Each block requires (1) Large Flying Geese Unit, and (2) Smaller Units. The pattern uses the 4 at a time method, so it is recommended that you complete (4) blocks at a time for (4) identical blocks. However, for the scrappy version, the flying geese units are replaced with 2 at a time HST to help repurpose those cute little scraps! 

STAGE 3: Optional Diamonds

If you would like to add in another scrappy element to your Love Yourself First Quilt, consider adding the diamonds to your background squares. It’s a great way to use up some of those 2″ squares you have been saving for the perfect project…

Now Put it All Together!

The possibilities are endless!
I chose to use 4 different 2″ x 2″ squares for multicoloured diamonds. It just felt right with this scrappy wonder!

Quilt Details

I used a Sherpa for the quilt backing. It’s super light, but amazingly soft. The quilting is Be Mine by Urban Elementz, a 9.5″ pantograph. I love how the floral hearts fit the quilt’s theme.
