To make Emily's Heart quilt block:


A: Cut 4, and cut 4 from contrasting fabric. (These pieces include area under heart appliqué.) B: Cut 4, and cut 4 from reverse pattern and contrasting fabric.
Here's one excellent fabric choice.


Stitch A to contrast A; make 4. Stitch AA's together to make a pinwheel square. Stitch B to contrast B along heart middle; make 4. Trace and cut fusible webbing heart; make 4. With fusible side of webbing to right side of heart, sew webbing to heart; make 4. Clip curves, and trim seam allowances. Cut a small slit in webbing, and turn. Place hearts so center seam is on a horizontal or vertical seam of pinwheel. Fuse hearts to pinwheel. By hand or machine, appliqué all pieces using narrow blanket stitch.
This fabric variation is a bit more bold.
