I Love to Make FPP Quilt Block

The I Love to Make FPP Quilt Block pdf pattern is ideal for sewing themed patchwork and quilting projects or for anyone that just loves to make!

This block has been designed as part of the Quilt Block Mania series that is hosted by Carolina Moore. Each month there are a series of blocks along a theme that can be downloaded for free! This month the theme is ‘Maker’ so I designed an FPP quilt block called ‘I Love to Make’.

To get a copy of my ‘I Love to Make’ quilt block all you need to do is sign up for the newsletter before the end of February 2024. There is a sign up box lower down this page.

Scroll to the bottom of this blog post to see all of the other great blocks that are also available for free this month!

This block is going to look great as a mini wall hanging in your sewing space or you could maybe incorporate it into a useful tote bag!

In this pattern there are just two seams to match (one on the heart and one on the M). If you look on page 4 of the instructions you’ll see two green circles on the diagram to help you.

Other than that it’s a relatively easy pattern to make. There are some smaller pieces around the letter O to give it it’s curved shape, but the process is just the same as when sewing any of the other letters. Just tackle one seam at a time!

The ‘I Love to Make’ quilt block pdf pattern has lots of great features. When you have signed up to the newsletter you will get an email with links to two different files. The first file has the instructions and the second has the pattern pieces. This means that you can choose to print out just the pages that you need.

The I Love to Make FPP Quilt Block pattern has many great features:

:: Full colour instructions
:: Coloured illustration of the block
:: Blank diagram of the block and a useful key so you can plan your colours and fabric placement
:: Construction diagrams to help with putting the block together
:: Digitally drawn pattern pieces for accuracy, plus a 1″ test square so you can check your printer settings before starting to sew
:: Pattern pieces that have been reversed so that you make a block exactly the same as the picture (so important when you are sewing letters!)
:: Pattern pieces can print out on A4 or US Letter paper
:: Pattern pieces feature a patterned/non-solid fill so that you minimise printer ink usage

If you know me, you’ll know that I have a bit of a soft spot for a light blue background so when I was looking at colours for making up the sample it was hard for me to choose anything different! I did however mock up how the block would look with a white or a black background. Both so striking!

Need some FPP supplies?

Here are some links to a few of the tools that I use when doing FPP…I really wouldn’t be without them!

If you click on any of the buttons or images below and buy the products, I will receive a few pence commission from Amazon as an affiliate, don’t worry, you will pay the same price regardless.

Add a Quarter Ruler

I use my add a quarter ruler (and my add an eighth ruler) every time I do FPP!

This glue gets used every time I add my first piece of fabric (and for so many other things!)

Clover Glass Head Quilters Pins

 Pym glass head quilting pins, for me, are the ideal length and thickness for patchwork!

Sewing clips are always useful for so many different projects, not just patchwork!

    • Thanks Lori, so glad you like the block! A mini wall hanging or a framed version of the block would look so great in your daughter’s creative space!
