In this video I used Ukrainian Quilt Pattern Designer Oleksandra Derenovska’s (Sashas Quilts on Etsy) Foundation Paper Pieced Heart Quilt Block, to make a wall hanging in support of Ukraine.
Below you will find the link to the SashasQuilt pattern for sale on Etsy as well as a link to get my free heart pattern which I used for the border.
I have also included a donation link for the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal as well as other Ukrainian crafters on Etsy who you may wish to support with a pattern purchase.

Adding the Border
I added a border to the Sasha’s Quilts Heat Pattern Block.
I used four of my free FPP heart pattern as cornerstones and finished with plain white cotton fabric.
This is a 6.5″ unfinished/ 6″ finished border and I explained my haphazard approach to piecing it in the video above!
Below is it all quilted up. I used a facing method to finish it rather than binding and I added hanging corners for a dowel so I could hang it in my window facing out to the street.
