Remember this one? It's been lurking in my UFO basket for nearly 9 years. Time to pull it out and work on it. My thought when I began it years ago, was to add more borders and some wording in the border. I called it "Conversation Hearts" as the applique heart blocks have embroidered sayings in the center. Just like the conversation heart candies.
I got tired of it. Trying to think past the business of the center and bringing some elements out to the border, it was just hard to concentrate on, so it ended up on the bottom of the basket until just the other day. I pinned it up on my design board and sat across from it and stared at it for a while. Dug out all the bits and pieces left over, then it slowly came to me.
I have posted a step-by-step approach to binding a quilt here. I want to add that instead of using a piece of cardboard for your binding spool, you could use an empty heavy cardboard roll from clingfilm or foil, and a little piece of 2 sided tape to hold the end to the roll. Using the roll, it will be easy to unroll the binding while sewing and not leave any crease marks.
