Finally , after 2 years of owning this pattern I am going to start it. Some of the applique is tiny so I will be machine stitching those down. I am going to combine machine embroidery with needle turn on this one. Many of the hearts have a ridge going all around and I will be using the machine for the hearts. I did a practice run on the machine with the leaves in this block and I do not like how they look so I am starting them over and using the needle turn technique.
