Hold Onto Your Heart: Creating Bows

I've got my heart set on this stripe fabric for the bows. Of course, I had to make things just a bit tricky for myself with this fabric option! Due to the stripes, I had to pay extra attention to the stripe directions when cutting out my fusible and positioning it on the reverse of my fabric. I had a bit of a brain freeze but got their in the end.
When finally happy with the stripe positions (it took 2 attempts!), I turned my edges.
This is what the back looks like. I'm using the pattern sheet as my guide - just like I always recommend. Don't allow your bows to grow!
Ok, I'm happy with my bows, now it's time to move onto the stems and vines.. 
 'Hold Onto Your Heart' is a paid BOM 
It's a breathtaking quilt full of meaningful symbols and beauty. The floral border is a triumph which offers an additional  pieced option - making it versatile for all skill levels. Perfect for lovers and enthusiasts of applique. 

You can start this BOM today!
