All those hearts that I've been making over the past week (all 49 of them) have been hand appliqued in place. I didn't use a pattern for this project, I simply cut out a very basic heart template, as mentioned in my previous post. These fabrics are from the Little Sweetheart collection by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts, and were the larger leftover scraps from a bundle of fat quarters. (That project is currently with Daisy May Quilting - all will be revealed in a few weeks!). Normally my scraps are resigned to being donated to quilty-friends, but these were so pretty that I decided to actually use them myself! This has been layered up with a piece of wadding and backing fabric, ready for some simple machine quilting.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
