Someone had spent a lot of time cutting out and carefully appliquing all those little hearts and big bows to create wreaths inside each block of this quilt.
How to quilt it? I started by stitching in the ditch around all the blocks, then I echo stitched about a quarter inch out from each heart and bow. Next I used my Line Tamer ruler to stitch diagonal lines inside each heart ‘wreath’, then stippled in the remaining white space.
I kept the border simple, just stitching a straight echo line a half inch from the seams.
