Scrappy heart potholder

I came across a tutorial for paper piecing and since I have wanted to try the technique for a while I thought I would just go for it.


The scrappy heart pattern (pdf) can be downloaded from the Sewing Mamas website. You will need to log in to download the pattern.

Free motion quilting

I usually stipple quilt my quilts but I decided to try something new.
