    QB Block-of-the-Month, February 2013 - Crazy Heart Directions & Discussion

    posted on behalf of fmhall2.

    the attached instructions can be adapted to a number of uses.
    fmhall2 used hers to make a mug rug.

    i can see it stuffed with something scented to make a sache'.
    stuffed as a pin cushion.
    enlarged to make a pillow.
    used as a fused or needleturn applique motif.

    the possibilities are limited only by our imaginations.

    i can't wait to see the photos you post to show us how you used it!

    This will be fun, and hopefully I can use up some scraps from paper piecing the Jan block.

    Any tips for turning under the edges? I went to a needle-turned applique class but it was pretty hard. Maybe just cover up the edges with nice stitching? Oh wait, that's another problem, I'd have to be able to stitch curves.

    Is this a block or a Mug rug. I'm not seeing this as a block. It's pretty, but how would you set it with other blocks? Applique?

    that's one part of the challenge - to choose how to use the heart once it's made.
    as stated, fmhall2 used hers to make a mug rug.
    i applied mine to a background using a satin stitch.

    there are countless methods for applique.
    i think there are several in our own Tutorials section: http://www.quiltingboard.com/sitemap/f-10.html

    a quick google or you tube search should bring up lots of tutorials to choose from.

    Good idea, I used paper piecing foundation but I'm going to remove the paper and use Heat & Bond, then stitch around the edges.

    I can't wait to get started! I don't know what it's going to be when I'm finished but I've never paper pieced anything and this gives me a place to start. Yes I can!
    Thanks for the block!
