Charmed, I'm Sure

The Charm School project for this month is from the January/February 2012 issue of McCall's Quilting.  We used a charm pack to make this cute wall hanging, "Heart of Hearts."  The little hearts that make up the petals on the heart-shaped bloom (I think it looks more like a balloon) are traced on two layers of fabric glued together with "Steam-a-Seam" then sewn individually to the quilted background.  I used pinking shears to cut mine, then washed the finished wall hanging to make the hearts look more fluffy.  Michele had the good idea to cut each charm square in half so the front and back of each heart is the same, allowing for a greater variety of fabrics in the hearts.

I'm giving this little sweetie to a sweet friend who gave me a bag of "Kansas Troubles" scraps to add to my log cabin quilt.
