In the "Bless Your Hearts" project you will learn to create an 18” Square Table Topper featuring an elegant heart pattern to share the love with someone close to you. This is a two session project in which we will learn how to use the Westalee Design Hearts Templates and how to measure for centering borders.
"Anytime is the perfect time for stitching Hearts! You will not only enjoy stitching the design, but you will also learn how to plan and prepare your design area for creating the ‘honesty lines’ for easier template manipulation and matching and using the templates to miter the border corners. In the video, I will show you how I use the Westalee Design Stitching Line Discs to draw out my design. You will also see how to use the Quick Easy Mitered Binding Tool that I designed for bringing the backing fabric to the front to create a perfectly mitered faux (and fast!) binding. I invite you to join me for Bless Your Hearts." - Donelle McAdams
