Valentine's Quilt, with block tutorial

Heart block is a modified 4 patch.
For each block cut:
1 white 3.5" square
1 red 3.5" square
2 white 1.5" x 3.5" rectangles
2 red 2.5" x 3.5" rectables

Assemble as shown below.

Finished block is 6.5" square

Completed 49" x 62" Valentine's quilt top.
Blocks are set on point with 3.5" sashing.
The border is scrappy piano key style.

Now to quilt it. 
I'm planning to FMQ feathers in the white border,
not sure about the other areas.
Any ideas?


Whoop, Whoop!

Whoop whoop!!
