Key to My Heart Pattern Update | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Not Finished is a Key to My Heart lap quilt top.  April's project for Island Batik Ambassadors is to look back at Vintage quilts and make them new again.  I chose the snowball block found in my Key to My Heart pattern and remade it in Island Batik Beaujolais with a charcoal background.


The Snowball quilt block is of Amish origin.  I couldn't find history on it other than that.

My pattern editor and tester, Shannon of The Flemings Nine made this bright version with a white background.  The fabric is Lily and Loom Daisy Delights.


The pattern has been completely rewritten from its original publishing three years ago.  I have grown a lot as a pattern writer, and the new one is much better than the first edition.  If you previously purchased Key to My Heart from Craftsy, the new pattern will be available for you to download for free through your Craftsy account.

Key to My Heart includes instructions in 7 sizes from wall hanging to king and uses layer cakes or yardage.  It's a great beginner quilt that will go together quickly.  You can buy the pattern at a low introductory price in my pattern shop today!

Myra, your vintage made modern Snowball quilt looks great in Island Batik fabrics! On black it has that nod to the Amish who loved using black backgrounds with jewel-tone fabrics. Love that :-)
