I'm still working on my Heirloom Quilt Blocks with another two in progress.
- Crazy Patchwork Heart -
Made a crazy patchwork rectangle, traced and cut out a heart shape. Attached it to my block with 2 types of satin stitch, to get a frilly appearance, and then decorated it with machine stitches. Think it needs something else around the heart so I am going to sew a grid pattern on the background.

- Satin Heart -
Another heart shape but this time I used twin needles to grid the satin material, traced and cut out the heart shape and satin stitched in onto the block. It was just too plain for me, so I found some beautiful lace and using my free motion foot, attached it around the heart. I am debating whether to add another lace piece above the heart but am undecided.......what do you think????
