This Valentines Day block is sure to make up into a great quilt. With a group of quilters making their own blocks to add to the pool for someone to win you will get a stunning range of colorful blocks!

Click on the image above to download a PDF of this BOM.

This BOM was one of my early attempts and unfortunately the diagrams below are very fuzzy.

I nearly removed this one from my site but then decided to leave it until I make a more appealing block in the future to replace it.

Please feel free to improve the PDF by ruling over the diagram lines and lettering. I wont be offended.
