This quilt design does not fit my personal idea of ‘pretty’. It does fit the basic challenge idea, though: “What would happen if I …?”

I substituted hearts for the triangle patches on a few well-known pieced blocks. I gave all the new applique blocks the same pieced background. Then I used the pieced blocks in the border.

Blocks used are “Flower Basket”; “Dutchman’s Puzzle”; “Old Maid’s Puzzle”; and “Variable Star Variation”.
