    The easiest way to "re draft" would be to add 1 inch: Make your string rectangles 3 1/2 x 9 1/2 and make your side strips 4 x 9. This would add the length you need without changing the width and still keeps the heart shape intact....it will just be a little longer. Good luck.

    Hi Rachel, I finished my first set. All hand embroidery. Here's my next set. (machine embroidery) Only 2 more to go. I have my third set in the works also. But, they didn't seem to want to go together today. (paper piecing) I was taking more out then I was putting in. But, I will be giving them another try on Monday. (I work on the weekends.) Having lots of fun tho. Hope to see more pretty blocks soon.

    Thank you all so much. Paula, I hope that maybe you'll come join us. I don't know how many people have signed up...But the pull of pretty valentines. Purples, Pinks, Reds....I hope we'll have more joiners. These block swaps are so much fun.
