We’re back for another season of blog remixes! We saw the great response to the remixed projects from last year and are continuing them for another year!

We even had some awesome quilty friends make their version of the Makin’ it Cute Heart’s Delight projects! We love seeing the different fabrics they made their Heart’s Delights in and the tips they have to share.
Quilty Staffer Deborah made her Heart’s Delights using Aura by Mister Domestic for Art Gallery Fabrics. She says, “I used fusible batting and when ironed for a long period the heart becomes very flat and “cardboard like” which is great to put on a gift bag or package. One heart set was pressed this way but the other two were lightly pressed for the cute puffy look.”
Quilty Staffer Nancy made her Hearts Delights using Once Upon a Time by Stacy Iest Hsu for Moda Fabrics. She says, “I used a double-sided fusible batting to complete this project. The hearts come out a bit flatter than using regular batting with the spray adhesive, but I like the result.”
Melanie of A Bit of Scrap Stuff (@abitofscrapstuff) used Badda Bing! by Me and My Sister Designs for Moda Fabrics to make her Hearts Delights. She says, “I used the Makin’ It Cute templates with Heat n Bond instead of batting as I was placing the hearts on a purse for my daughter. It’s the perfect size for carrying her little puppies everywhere – plus it zips!” Love it!
Jen of the Smitten Chicken (@thesmittenchicken) made her Heart’s Delight using leftover Bonnie & Camille scraps. She made a banner using silhouettes to cut out the letters (be sure to check out her blog for a free download of the letter templates)! She says, “My tip is to use spray n bond! It speeds up making these hearts!”. This would be adorable for a Valentine’s Day photo booth!
Kristina of Center Street Quilts (@centerstreetquilts) made her Heart’s Delights using Cheeky by Urban Chiks for Moda Fabrics. She says, “For a tip, instead of sewing around the hearts with the sewing machine, I did a simple running stitch with embroidery floss around the middle heart. I thought it added a cute handmade touch.” Sew cute!
