It turned out that the hearts were a good choice for this class. The last two times I've taught applique, it seemed no one finished their projects. This way, they can make something out of all of the blocks or just a few, depending on their moods, needs, etc. Together, the hearts would make a cute baby quilt.
Here are some of the blocks I've made as class samples. I have a few more to finish up, and then I'll figure out what to do - maybe a table runner? Place mats?
I made a mug rug out of the sample I did with a dryer sheet on the back. I machine appliqued it, as I knew I didn't want to keep it in with the other hand appliqued pieces.
Now who will be the lucky recipient.....?
