GO! Ahead and Show Some Love Blog Hop

Paulette  (Sweet P Quilting) has coordinated a fun blog hop that everyone is invited to.  There will be inspirational projects, tips, tutorials and a few giveaways too! 

While I've been unusually busy, I wanted to provide some treats for everyone.  I was inspired by an idea on Pinterest, and was easily able to create a version of it using the AccuQuilt and GO! Heart die.  You simply cut wax paper hearts and stitch them, leaving a partial opening.  Using a spoon, I filled them with M&Ms and then finished stitching them to seal the package. 

Later this week I'll share some tips on how to do a mock needle turn applique technique' that is also perfect for AccuQuilt designs.

I hope you will have fun visiting all the blogs in this blog hop. They'll be tutorials, tips, inspiration and a few giveaways too.    Here is the line up.

I would never have dreamed that would work! Is there a stitch length that works best? It just seems like it would tear....I gotta go and try this! LOL
