To keep it fun, I stepped way outside of the normal color pallet and reached for a few saturated colors.

After a few quick cuts at the table, I was ready to sit down at the machine and just sew. I laid everything out to help keep me on track.

There is actually a little backstory to this block. Amy & I each designed 6 of the blocks within the Heartland Heritage quilt and this is one of mine. Something about the block spoke to me on so many levels. It was a pull that I could not shy away from and had to actually make a sample before we even finished designing the quilt.

Add your favorite block to back of any quilt for an instant conversation. We love the way the Puppy Love quilt block looks on the back of Inspiring Stitches Heartland Heritage quilt.

That sample block was incorporated on the back of my quilt. For me, I just love adding a few of my favorite blocks to the back. This way the back of the quilt can be just as interesting as the front.  So, my tip is simple, consider stepping outside the standard solid backing box and include a few of your favorite blocks instead.

To complete the Heartland Heritage pattern you will need to make 5 posy blocks and we would love to see them.  Be sure to share a picture of your finished Puppy Love blocks with us here.
