My 2nd Heart Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I machine appliqued the hearts, instead of hand-appliqueing like I did the first time. It was SO much faster, and I liked the way it looked. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This was my first attempt at machine applique. I used Steam-A-Seam light, and removed the center of the hearts (so there was just about 1/2 to 3/4-inch of Steam-A-Seam around the edge of each heart) before applying to the fabric so the hearts wouldn't be stiff. It took a little more time, but was worth it.

I would love to make this quilt. Did you use a pattern?
Debbie C. answered:
Yes, the pattern came from a book called "Quilts! Quilts! Quilts!" I think. I'm away from home now, so can't confirm it, but I will check for you when I get home and confirm.
