I've created a series of patterns that are different from my usual. Each of these blocks include hearts. They can be sewn using traditional quilting techniques or modern fusible appliqué. This is an older book, but one that I regularly revisit, as I still find them useful, versatile, and fun. I recent years I have been sewing them up with felted wool into wool penny rugs. I've included several photos showing examples of this.
This listing is for the book "Paper Cut Valentines". This 16 page booklet features Hawaiian style patterns for five 20" blocks and four 10" blocks plus instructions for both hand and machine applique quilting. The designs also work well as quilting motifs.
These popular patterns are similar to Hawaiian quilting, but they are not Hawaiian themes, and I am not from Hawaii, so I call them Paper Cut patterns.
The technique is similar to cutting a paper snowflake, they are fun and addictive. Look for more patterns similar to these with different animals and themes in this Etsy store. Thanks for looking!
