What is the Home + Hearth Expansion Pack
It turns out that the math and assembly for a Hearth + Home quilt in solids is a little different.
The Expansion Pack came about because I wanted to make a 2-color version of the original Hearth + Home pattern. However, the math and assembly instructions varied so much I decided to create a second pattern for these instructions.
Hearth + Home Expansion Pack Pattern is a little different from the original Hearth + Home pattern. Because there are only two colors, the cutting and assembly is a little more streamlined, even if you decide to use a variety of fabrics in a single color.
And, the best part, I’ve included a Bonus pattern – The Fireside Mini Quilt! This bonus pattern takes almost all of those triangle sets leftover from trimming snowball blocks and converts them into an amazing mini quilt.
About the Hearth + Home Expansion Pack
One thing you’ll notice on the Hearth + Home quilt pattern is the two options, and each option has four sizes. The Expansion Pack includes updated fabric requirements, additional piecing methods, and a Bonus Project!
Each pattern has its own unique look. The Hearth version creates a star-like design and the Home version looks like a lattice. Both look amazing when done in solids, but another option would be to take your scraps in a single color to give either option a scrappy modern look.
Bonus: The Fireside Mini Quilt!
When creating of the Hearth + Home quilt versions, you will encounter a dilemma. Trimming the snowball blocks creates a large number of leftover triangle pairs that can be used to make a mini quilt!
Also, with almost any quilt there’s always a little more of the background fabric leftover but never enough to use in another quilt.
So, I took all of those leftover triangle pairs and the remaining background fabric to create the Fireside Mini Quilt as a bonus pattern with the Hearth + Home Expansion Pack. There is also an exclusive video (see QR Code in pattern) showing how to make HSTs while making Snowball Blocks. After trimming, they’ll be ready to make a Fireside Mini Quilt!
