Good Morning All,
Thank you to all of you, especially Elana, Chris W, and Christa, who have welcomed me back with such enthusiasm.
Here is today's new stitch-out. I call it Crazy Hearts. It's a great background fill especially for little girls quilts.
It looks pretty easy and it is once you get the rhythm down. You may want to doodle it out first so you get used to the density and placement.
To begin, stitch a small heart that is about 1/2 -3/4 of an inch in size. Echo stitch around the heart one time then make a second heart and echo stitch around it. Keep adding hearts and surrounding them with one or more echos. Try to keep it so that there is no negative space between the echoed hearts. You can vary the size of the hearts or keep them all about the same size like I did. You can also stitch the heart in a bigger size, but that will make it more difficult to butt them next to each other.
Hope you enjoy today's new design,
