SCRAP Bee heart error and correction

I got to work yesterday and cut out hearts for BeeBee.  I zig-zagged them down onto her pieces of red and pink.  I put them in an envelope and addressed it.  I set the envelope on the kitchen counter to mail the next day or two.


Then I went to my computer and read the post by Victoria and looked at HER photo.
Hmm, she only used red and pink fabrics for  HER hearts. . . . .  Was that what I was supposed to do too?  Maybe I had better go and read the original instructions which came out a while  ago.  Oh, no!  She did say "Use your red and pink fabrics"!  Guess that didn't stick in my memory.

So how do I preserve her background fabrics ?  Think, think, think.....



Oh, yes.... REVERSE applique.

I cut CAREFULLY around the "wrong" hearts.  I made a bigger piece of made red & pink fabric and put it UNDER the hole.  Then I did the zig-zag thing again.


All fixed.  Even made a couple small ones.
Back in the envelope.
Ready to mail tomorrow.

Whew!  Glad I caught that!

I wanted pinks and reds but the ones you made would have been fine. I look forward to getting them. This is going to be a pretty quilt.
