Heart Motif for Red and White Quilts for Feb Blog Hop

Here’s a peek at the heart motif I’m using in the red and white quilt. This design is very simple using the small and medium hearts from the Accuquilt GO heart die and a single decorative stitch around the outside of each heart. I have split this design in half and in quarters for those who have smaller hoops. The half design fits a hoop that is 150 x 200 mm and the quarter design fits a hoop that is 100 x 150 mm.

Heart Motif for Red and White Blog Hop Designs

Sarah Vedeler (who creates gorgeous machine embroidery designs) has wonderful instructions for stitching a split design on a smaller hoop. So, if you don’t have a hoop that is at least 200 x 200 mm, you can still stitch this design using her method. Or, if you prefer, you can stitch this design on your domestic sewing machine using the applique or satin stitch.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.
