Easy & Fast Heart Garland Tutorial

Easy &Fast Heart Garland Tutorial


1 Valentine’s Charm Pack or Valentine’s colored scrap fabrics
Rick Rack OR Ribbon
Scrap Batting pieces about 5” X 5” (large enough for charm square)
Pinking Shears
Matching Thread

1. Choose two charm squares (one for front of heart and one for back of heart) and one piece of batting.
2. Trace a heart shape on all three pieces (2 fabrics and 1 batting) and cut out with pinking shears.

3. Layer one fabric wrong side up then put rick rack on top of fabric leaving a few inches from the end. Next put batting on top of rick rack and then put the other fabric heart on top right side up. This is making a quilt sandwich with the two fabrics, batting, and rick rack.

4. Quilt as desired. This would be a great time to play with fun stitches on your sewing machine that you’ve never used before!

5. Continue until you have as many hearts as you desire, remembering to leave a few inches between the hearts.

Your garland is now finished, hang and enjoy!!
