It occurred to me that perhaps I could make a crumb block and then cut it with my Accuquilt GO die and have a crazy patch applique block. So — I did. It was so easy.
I just put a few crumbs together,
ran them through the Accuquilt GO with the large heart die,
stitched a die line onto the background fabric with the embroidery machine,
glued the heart to the background with Elmer’s purple school glue stick,
put it back on the embroidery machine for the applique stitches,
removed the tearaway stabilizer and pressed
— and voila! really cute heart blocks!
