Makin’ it Cute Heart’s Delight and Butterfly Bliss


Me & My Sister have done it again, designing two more “Makin’ it Cute” patterns,

Heart’s Delight and Butterfly Bliss.

Fat Quarter Shop ask moda to join the blog hop showing

different ways to make and use these new products.

Wow what a cute idea, for embellishing anything and everything.

First up I used all the Heart’s Delight templates and created a country quilted heart ornament for the tree or a package.

The fabric is Petite Prints by French General (shipping in December)

and two of the hearts are made with Kraft-tex,

a washable paper fabric product that has all kinds of possibilities.

I love piecing mini quilts so the first heart used 1” squares pieced

and quilted with batting.

Can’t you just see a Christmas package wrapped in red with this as a tag or ornament?


To brightin’ up my little granddaughter’s denim jumper,

I used Butterfly Bliss and Catalina Batiks (in stores now).

The templates are so easy to trace and use with all kinds of materials,

such as old denim jeans.

The big flutter-fly as my three year old granddaughter calls butterflies,

was made with scraps of old jeans and Timtex as a stiffener

in the middle of the two layers of denim then sewn together and trimmed to size.

I wanted it to look like angel wings on my sweet baby girl.

Then I appliqued the smaller flutter-flies in batiks to jazz up the front of the jumper.

The smaller denim one has the Kraft-tex in the middle layer which is also nice and stiff,

great for bows or a chew toy for teething.

    Such a clever idea and so simple. Easy enough that there is no excuse for not embellishing with hearts or flutterbys. The charms are delightful, particular the little prints from FG.
