    I have all these lovely hearts for applique. Originally I was going to put them on an 8" block and just string them together. BUT, (there's always a but) I didn't really like that idea. Sooooooo, which do you prefer?

    I think I like the same fabric on the same block the best.

    I like them all the same also. Second choice would be the three on the ten inch block

    Thank you. You all have strengthened my thoughts. I really liked the 4 hearts on the 15.5" block. A couple of my friends said to do the small blocks with or without sashing. I prefer the first way too. I just needed some backbone to do it my way! thank you "backbones".

    Number 2....but....have you looked at any of the "Affairs of the Heart" blocks posted on QB at various times?....some great inspiration there, any could be somewhat simplified.

    I like #2, because I like the scrappy look.

    If you took block #1 in shades of green, add a stem it would work as a shamrock for St. Patrick's day.

    I like 1 and 2, but I like the second one best, with the different fabrics on a 15.5 block, because it offers more variety. The first one looks like a red shamrock to me, but of course that may be what you are looking for. Whatever you do it can't help but be pretty!

    I agree with everyone else - the first one looks best.
