My heart is cut out of a 5 inch charm square and placed on a 7 inch background. I just drew around the heart onto the fabric. I trimmed it around the drawn line and will use needle turn appliqué to finish it off. The blocks will be trimmed down to 6.5 inches once they are all appliquéd down. I am planning to set mine with a scrappy nine patch block using 2.5 inch squares.
I will be making these as I sew other things this month. I have this nice little basket of parts next to my sewing machine so I can pull and work on these nine patches as a leader and ender. The hearts - those are my car line and evening hand work this month. A good mix of hand and machine for me.
I would love to see your hearts. Please use the link up so we can all enjoy your work.
