Thanks to Madamme Samm for inviting me over again! I am Marianna from QDD and Craftluver. I really love to write up tutorials for you all! I hope you like what I made this time: a crazy quilted Valentines heart, the easy peasy way!
A small embroidery piece or nice fabric for the center
Backing the size of the batting (see pattern below)
Lace trims and other cute decorating stuff for crazy quilting
How to start:
1) Cut the pattern of paper (download the pdf in the end, the heart shape is in there)
2) Put it on the batting and cut out. Make sure it is the size you want it to finish at (so add seamallowance more if you want it larger) and a little bit more for shrinkage.
3) Do the same for the backing
4) Lay them on top of each other batting facing up
7) Pick a nice contrasting fabric scrap and put it right side facing down on your center piece. Make sure the center piece is covered at the edge.
8) Sew through all layers at once.
8) Continue clockwise or countern clockwise, but keep doing the same till the whole piece is covered.
10) You can decorate it on the way. Sew a piece of lace on top of one fabric piece before you add the next piece, so the edges are nicely covered. You can also do this in the end for the lace or trims that end in the border. They will be covered by the binding.
11) Finish as an ordinary quilt, without the quilting part (you have done that while sewing), and attach a ribbon at the top center to hang it. Even when totally finished you still can add embroidery stitches or buttons or beads. Sew through all layers.
Here's the process in pictures:
The pattern description and the heart pattern are in one document and you can find it HERE. Enjoy!
