I think I love Valentine’s Day so much because it pulls me out of the “After Christmas Blues”. It’s bright, and happy! I love the simplicity of this quilt – a simple heart applique. What makes it feel special is that no two hearts are the same and the backgrounds are a variety of low volume prints. When ever I go to a quilt shop and I’m not sure what to buy, I end up purchasing charm packs. I had this “Scrumptious” charm pack by Moda tucked away and it was perfect for this project. You can hop over to the Sizzix Blog for the full tutorial!!
I love using the Sizzix Bigz Heart Die #3 because it fits charm squares perfectly and there is not much waste.
I used Therm o Web Heat n Bond Lite to fuse the hearts onto the quilt.
I can’t get enough of these colors!
Mufasa was very helpful on this project. His favorite toy is the Sizzix machine!!!
I quilted a scallop boarder around each heart to give it a “Valentine” feel.
I am so in love with this quilt! It was so fun to make I’m thinking about making another one!!!
