A couple of weeks ago, blog reader extraordinaire Linda sent me some pictures of her new way to do hearts. Unfortunately I think I messed up her pictures when I downloaded them. Luckily, Mimi’s Bloomers Block 6 has hearts in it so I thought I would give it a try and WOW was that fun and EASY. Here’s how she did it:
First, cut you template out.
Then cut out a heart in your fabric of choice, making sure to leave a scant 1/4” seam allowance.
Clip into the point at the top.
Starting at the top of the heart, make a small running stitch in the seam allowance all the way to the bottom.
Leave a longish tail of thread at the bottom.
Do the other side in the same way.
Pull one thread tight, starch and press. Repeat on the other side.
Fold lower point under and press.
And here you have a perfect little heart!!!!
and a sneak peak…Block 6 coming Friday!
