Don’t you just LOVE hearts? I especially like primitive ones. custodia mimetica iphone 7 I have many heart quilts, so this one is more of a table runner or banner type. antigraffio custodia trasparente cover rigida per iphone 7 plus This is an original design that I made up to teach my quilt guild how to do a primitive heart. Pretty fun and pretty scrappy.Let’s make a primitive heart!Remember: Primitive is not sloppy, just naive or untrained or child like. I still want it to lay flat and hold together well. To begin with, draw an 8 1/2″ square. Divide it into quarters-more or less-Draw your primitive heart lines, points aren’t necessary and curves aren’t necessary. custodia rigida per iphone 7 (Refer to picture above.) Label the pieces sequentially, 1B (background) 2B, 3B, 4B, 5B, 6B; and 1H (heart) 2H, 3H, 4H. Cut the pieces apart, place on top of freezer paper and add 1/4″ seam allowance all the way around. Label the pieces.Iron the freezer paper templates to the background fabric and cut on the lines. custodia iphone running Grain line is not critical, but I like to keep at least one of the outside edges on the grain. custodia iphone 6 joyguard Iron your freezer paper heart template to red fabric and cut around it. Sometimes I layer 4-5 fabric pieces and cut them all at once. Now I lay out all the background and heart pieces in the order they will be sewn. Sew 1B to 1H, then 2B to 1H, then 3B to 2H, then 4B to 2H, then 5B to 3H, then 6B to 4H. Now sew the two bottom half pieces together in the center, then the two top half pieces together in the center. Now sew the top half of the heart to the bottom half of the heart. It does not matter if the seams match. In fact, I think it is more charming if they are “casually off.” The pieces look pretty rough here, but I don’t mind. You can clean them up in order to have a nice flat straight seam on the back side. custodia iphone 6 leathlux I have “cleaned up” the center sewing seam for this section. I sprayed starch on the heart and gave it a good press. Then play around with ruler placement and get a nice 8 1/2″ square block. Don’t worry about chopping off points. I wanted the heart to have more definition, so I cut off the tips of the heart and added a background strip so the heart would float. See how the plaid is casually off grain? I think that adds more interest to the block. Now I added the oversized background stripAnd cut off the excess once I sewed it to the block I made 5 blocks, arranged them to please my eye, set one on it’s side and sewed the runner together. I added 1/2″ red sashing and a 2″ black border, quilted and bound it.
The final installment of my orphan blocks included these four corner stars which were in a straight line. custodia iphone 6s grigia I joined them in a square, added four scrappy borders and a final scalloped border. custodia iphone 7 plus brillantini It turned into a fine table topper. custodia iphone 7 plus specchio My challenge is complete!

First of all, I need to correct the name of the orphan blocks I showed yesterday. They are NOT Ohio Stars, they are Sawtooth Stars. In searching images on the internet, I was particularly inspired by this one.I liked the layout, and I had most of the blocks already done. They were a bit of an odd size. They finished at 7 1/4″ square. The flying geese portion was 1 3/4″ x 3 1/2″, not your normal size. 9 x custodia iphone x I went through my stash and came up with fabric for 8 more blocks to add to the mix.

Now I had to mix them all up and arrange them in rows. I arranged them in what I thought was a pleasing manor and sewed them together. Next, I auditioned setting triangles and came up with this nice black print.Then I took it a step further and added a thin border of redIt’s looking good, but one final step, I went to my scrap basket and used only what was in there to create the final border, that in my opinion, MAKES the quilt.Wonderful plaids and prints in the same colors used in the blocks. custodia iphone 7 rock That’s the secret! Repeat colors 2-3 times in the quilt and don’t get to “matchy-matchy.” Check out the back:This is an OLD Hoffman fabric, but the colors are spectacular for this quilt. custodia iphone x basket It came in two pieces, but in order to make it fit the back I needed to seam it in five places. You can’t really even see them.One of the seams was only to add 1 1/2″ to the bottom of the quiltAnd you can see here, I didn’t have any too much extra! Now that’s cutting it close.This is a close up of part of the border. Nothing goes to waste! I finished the binding with 4 different black fabrics. You don’t even notice. I was going to donate this to a charity, but now I think I have to keep it.
