Good Morning, Quilters!
Today we are going to learn how to machine quilt the Scalloped Heart Motif. It’s a great motif for Valentine’s Day. It’s also a perfect motif to add to quilts any time you want to stitch in a little love. Of course, we always want to add love to our quilts…
I guess you could say the Scalloped Heart is perfect for any quilt!
Before we get started, I would like to share some exciting news! This year, I will be partnering with BERNINA to create 24 machine quilting videos and tutorials. The tutorials will be very similar to the Tuesday Tutorials found here at Lori Kennedy Quilts. Each lesson will include step-by-step still photos of the motifs. In addition, there will be a short video–usually less than a minute–demonstrating how to stitch the motifs.
How this Affects YOU
I still plan to create new motifs weekly–the Tuesday Tutorials--however, twice a month, I will link to BERNINA’s We All Sew for the full tutorial. Also, you may see the videos on your social media feeds from BERNINA before you see the patterns here.
Stay Tuned Here at LKQ
If you receive my email notifications (and I HOPE you do!!), you will see all of the new tutorials!
Each Tuesday I will either have a new tutorial here, or I will link to the new motif on BERNINA.
The Scalloped Heart Motif
This week, you will find the Scalloped Heart Motif on BERNINA’s We All Sew. The tutorial includes a video as well as step-by-step photos.
The Scalloped Heart would look great in the center of a block.
Or add a little “Love” to travel between motifs to create a horizontal border.
To create a vertical border, stitch the Scalloped Heart Motif, then stitch through the center to start the next heart in the row.
Are there any new opportunities in your life?
Does watching a video make stitching this motif easier?
What quilt in YOUR collection could use a little love?
We’d LOVE to hear!
