What are you most proud of? I am proud that this pattern keeps the patchwork tradition of using scraps of fabric to create something functional. The pattern comes with two options - this 'Americana' option and a 'log cabin' option. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a great practise piece for those 1/4" seams. But if your seams are not perfect it wont matter - it will just add a handmade look to the heart. The pattern comes with a quick and easy way to make the USA flag. Of course, you could change the red, white and blue colours to make it shabby chic or vintage. Regardless - have fun - play around with patterns and colours and fabric.
