This morning I got 5 of the hearts done and glued to the quilt. They will be machine appliqued. The plastic template material is working out really good and gets quicker with each one I do. That's a good thing since after the 25 large hearts there will be 28 smalls ones and 4 large ones for the corners.
When I did the first heart I decided on the placement and put a dot where the 4 lines meet the template. To keep all the hearts even I draw diagonal lines on the space and line up the template with the dots/lines.
Outline the top and bottom of the heart template.
Put a line of Elmer's School Glue on the heart.
Place the heart in the outline and iron to set.
One row is ready to sew.
