HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
The day of love, sweets, romance, chocolate, flowers, candy!

This time I went smaller. Instead of working with 1" grid, I decided to go with a 1/2" grid. If you look at Heart 1, you will see it has more space in between the bias tape and the heart in more elongated.
I starched the fabric this time, didn't use the fusible web tape and did not cut the fabric on the bias. All three of those things...Home Run!! It worked so much better!
I think I like this version best...so far! I like a good chubby heart!
More match stick quilting with white and pink thread. I like that with the light background you can clearly see the thread colors.
I'm not going to lie, I have plans for Heart #3. I know...I'm 'beating' (beating ... heart ... pun intended) this idea to death!!
What would it look like using a 3/4" grid?! Plus, I need to get a secret surprise gift for another unsuspecting person. I had so much fun with the few I did last year, I want to keep it up for 2017. With that in mind, wouldn't a pretty little heart be a nice surprise to receive?
Thank you for putting up with yet another heart...
