❤️ Day 4: Mirror-Image Hearts

No time to sew? No problem! This Valentine project is a super-fast one… 3 charm squares, some MistyFuse, a 5″ square of batting and a spool of gorgeous thread and you’re off and stitching!

First, bisect one square…a half square triangle to complement the square! Fold the triangle in half…

…and cut a half ❤️…the easiest way to ensure symmetry.

Unfold and carefully position on top of the square:

Layer with batting and backing and quilt by stitching a blanket stitch around the contrasting edges…zigzag around the edges and you’re done!
