This is one of the most challenging blocks I have pieced. I love how it turned out! I didn’t mark any of the lines of sewing as described in the instructions for this block. What I did was use a piece of Omnigrid Invisi-Grip marking the bottom of it with a fine line Sharpie Marker. I extended the Invisi-Grip past the needle and feed dogs, cutting out a rectangle for the feed dogs. I lined up the marked line with the needle. As I sewed I lined up the corner with the line as it is fed through the machine. It worked great. You can of course just use some tape to mark it too.
As for the quilting design for this block, I plan on the following:
- Stitching in the ditch around the hearts and between the block and the border
- Nested hearts inside the heart shapes.
- Straight lines echoing the triangles.
Until next time!
