Back in January I wrote a post about a piece of patchwork that needed to be quilted so that I could add it to my blanket pile to keep me warm! I decided that I wanted to make a feature of the quilting because the patchwork itself is quite simple. So I backed the patchwork with a piece of blue fleece and used my darning foot and free machining to stitch hearts of various sizes through both layers. It does use a lot of thread, but I’m really pleased with the effect! I’m stitching hearts in different sizes and filling some in too. What do you think of this effect?
