Done!

Little hearts in time for Valentine's Day.


Those letters in the border fabric make me smile. Between being a teacher and loving to write, they felt perfect. I also got nostalgic remembering being in grade school and sitting at the kitchen table writing the names of all the other students in my class on their Valentine's cards. Those really cute cards we all signed way back when and stuffed in the shoe boxes we had decorated with construction paper? Do kids still do that?


Look at that puppy face. Adorable.

One last picture, for perspective.



And, hey, appliqué!

  1. Oh Terrie--such a lovely finish--I sent for the hearts die for my Go!Baby --I was looking through my TWO (!!oh my!!) drawers of dies this morning and I have to start to use them....ya think?? A question: do you pre-iron your fabric before putting it through the machine? I usually do and spray starch it too. I really appreciate your Go! projects...Sometimes i think I'd use my dies more if I could figure out how to size up patterns....hugs Julierose

    1. Thanks! I usually starch at least a little. I'm planning on a Double Wedding Ring, I think, and I may lay the starch on a bit heavier for that one. That and the Hunter Star which has so much bias edging!

    1. I remember taking those cards very seriously! I always sorted thru the box first and pulled aside the "best" ones for my particular friends. Nice to hear it's still a thing.
