This arrived last week in the mail….
This little pattern is to make a Makin' It Cute heart! Let me tell you how easy it is. First of all - I made this - I am the Poster Child for easy. 2nd of all - Barb and Mary had the booth next to us at Quilt Market where they demonstrated this. I watched them Makin' It Cute about 1000 times. I could do it in my sleep. Take my word for it - this is quick, easy, and will adorn just about anything you want.
First I made a quilt sandwich. Then I traced the heart templates onto the top fabric. Look! I actually used scraps of fabric and batting - and here's the proof.
Next I stitched inside the drawn line on my trusty little Featherweight. Notice these are curved quilting lines. That's a first, folks. The only other machine quilting I have done is straight lines on a small quilt.
Then I cut out the hearts with pinking shears about 1/4" away from the stitches.
Then I went for a search of a button from my button tin. I sewed the button on, through all the layers and it was done. Now, what shall I adorn??
Gibby needed a little spiffing up. If you look very close, on the right side of his nose, he has lots of stitches. (NOT from my featherweight). He had a run in with a wire fence last week. He's doing great.
I would love to send this Makin' It Cute pattern, another pattern, and a Crazy For Red Layer Cake™to someone. Just comment on what you would adorn. I'll pick a winner Saturday October 18th. Thanks!
P.S. The winner of the Crazy For Red Fat Quarter Bundle™ from the previous post is…….. DKay. DKay, email me HERE and I'll get it right out to you.
