This is the Hearts and Hand block I was not looking forward to doing.
Not a 100% perfect, but it is done!
I have to admit that I was stymied as to how to go about this one (so many little pieces), so I messaged a friend, Ardie, who is a prolific appliquer and asked her advice.
She suggested that I do the heat resistant template method. All other blocks have either been needle turn or reverse applique to this point.
I have done the template method in the past but for very large pieces. You cut a template and starch the seam line and iron it over the template giving you a piece that is ready to stitch down.
I got my trusty, little Clover iron out and in no time I was ready to stitch away.
Ok.....that leaves me one more block to do. This one will be a little tricky. There are a couple of REALLY small pieces on this one, but I CAN do it!
