The Hearts on Fire Blog Hop started yesterday and so many great projects I have seen the past two days! If you haven't had a chance to visit anyone yet, the schedule for the whole hop is below.
When Carol @Just Let Me Quilt announced this blog hop, making something with hearts, any color but red, I knew just what I wanted to do.
I am also a crazy quilter, and haven't been doing much of that lately, and wanted to make a crazy quilt heart pillow. As my favorite colors are blue and turquoise those colors would be used.
My husband got me a Cricut for my birthday last year, and I have been wanting to put that to more use than just what I did at Christmas.
I first found a sort of wonky heart I liked and cut it out with card stock on the Cricut.
After I finished piecing the whole heart, I couldn't see it anymore on the front, so I turned it to the backside and stitched 1/4 inch out from that image of the heart.
I wanted to cut on "Crazy For You" out of iron-on vinyl on the Cricut, and I spent 2 days browsing fonts, but finally made a choice. Later after I ironed this on, I found an SVG file that said the same thing, but kept the same one. I cut out the heart on this piece of fabric so I could attach my crazy pieced heart in the middle.
I assembled the pillow. I found some really funky lace trim in my stash I think my friend Cathy @Crazy by Design sent me last year when I was working on a project last year. I thought it was perfect for this project.
That is my project, and many thanks to Carol @Just Let Me Quilt for this fun hop! Be sure and visit the others below and see their lovely projects!
