Candy Box Heart – free quilt block pattern to paper piece

Candy Box heart - a paper pieced quilt block patternThis easy-to-sew heart quilt block pattern was inspired by a luxurious red satin heart-shaped candy box I received one Valentine’s Day. The chocolates and the box are long gone, but the memory of them lives on in this versatile design.

Choose rich reds and roses for a sophisticated Valentine look. For fun, how about bright, funky geometrics? Soft, muted tones or romantic floral prints would also work well, as would those wonderfully cheerful 1930’s prints.

Since this design requires only a single foundation unit, you can paper piece it in no time!
