FNwF

What a welcome relief to the week when I can retreat to my sewing room, put on the repeat of Anzac Girls (episode 4), have a strong coffee and start sewing and planning.

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.


Crazy Patchwork Heart






















- 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????

Here are first four blocks of the Heirloom Quilt almost done.  I know what the next two are going to look like so that's half the problem solved all I need to do now is start sewing them.

Wow! Dawn your heirloom blocks are stunning. Is the satin fabric difficult to work with? The quilt is going to look fabulous!! :) x

Love this! I think you could add more lace above the heart, but it's pretty as it is. What do you mean by "twin needles"?
