Well this morning I was feeling inspired and I had the sewing machine out to sew up Lillian's heart, so I sewed up another CQ heart! The pink and purple fabrics are from Lillian too! I'm a beginner at CQ so I didn't even think of adding edgings in with the seams, but I think I would have passed for now anyway because I'm not a very experienced seamstress and I'm very new to piecing together...I consider the fact that I didn't get any puckering this time a great advancement!!! I even ironed open the seams in the back and pressed it when I finished!
I know that there are know rules in CQ, hence the Crazy with the Quilting, but I went ahead and finished the edges before embellishing when normally you wait to finish it until after you embellish. I just think in my brain it's easier than having to finish around embellishments. The only problem with this is if I want to add lace edging across a seam I'd have to wrap it around and then it looks chunky!
I have no idea of how I'm going to embellish! I don't have a plan for this heart, other than I think I'm going to use it for a swap. Wow! A blank slate! I could do ANYTHING! LOL Somehow that always makes it harder to make decisions! LOL
