Hearts behind the scenes.

Here’s a little Hearts behind-the-scenes action.

I was looking back through some photos, and found these shots from when I was making my new Hearts quilt. At this stage, I’d gotten all of my hearts cut, laid out and basted to the background.

I knew that I wanted to trim the background after I finished appliquéing the shapes, and so I used thread to mark my background edges. I love how much a little bit of thread can help you out!

I figured out my overall layout together, but I worked to baste the shapes one row at a time until everything was in place.

There we have it! A little peek at the process. I’ll admit that I really love this stage. I find the basting to be super satisfying.

Pattern: Hearts by me

Fabric: Collection CF (coming soon from me!) and Kona Seafoam
