Love's Token Crazy Quilt Heart from Vintage Vogue

Here's a crazy quilt heart featuring one of my favorite postcards from my personal collection. It's V121 from my Vintage Postcard CD.

Print the heart directly onto computer printer fabric with your inkjet printer, then use it as the foundation for your crazy quilt heart with the center image already in place.

To use this foundation pattern, align the edge of your fabric with the dotted line and sew on the straight line. Flip the fabric over and press toward the dotted line. Stitch two pieces of fabric together (2-1, 2-2 and 3-1, 3-2 and 4-1, 4-2). Treat as one piece of fabric for 2, 3 and 4. Stitch three pieces of fabric together (5-1, 5-2 then add 5-3). Treat as one piece of fabric for 4.

Piece the heart, then embellish it with threads, trims, ribbons and beads.

And have a Happy Valentine's Day!
