My fabrics were ready (ironed), I started to cut at the bottom piece to prepare the first part of the heart shape CQ block.I cut the first piece of the paper and reversed it on the back side of the fabric and pinned.
I precisely cut the fabric, leaving proper seam allowances and started to baste. I have a suggegstion for the newbies. Always start to baste from shorter side and never forget finger press when folding the fabric before stitching!
I kept continue same work clock wise direction.
I prepared them in a short period. Afterwords, I started to stitch each piece from their back. When I've completed to stitch all pieces, I ripped off the basting threads to remove papers. But, I recognized that I have to repeat one thing! I had to baste borders once again!
This is the final of the little heart shape CQ block that I made for my swap partner. I tried to explain what I did to create my little heart. Now, it is time to embellish it:)
Some of you may think that this is long way to create a small heart, but this is the best method I do to create a heart shape CQ block!!!! In addition, I wanted to be sure to create a nice thing for my partner.
