Celebrate all your favourite fabrics with this happy scrappy heart quilt that uses a mix of easy hand applique and machine piecing.
'Groove Is In The Heart' has a fresh, modern, vintage feel with lots of dots, checks, small geometrics, flowery florals and a few novelty prints for a whimsical touch. I always like to include a bird or two in my quilts.
The heart blocks are made with machine pieced backgrounds and easy hand applique for the hearts using freezer paper applique to help achieve easy crisp curves.
It was my travel project for a while, so I designed it as a hand sewing project but I have had students machine applique the blocks as well.
