❤️Bring the Love SAL❤️

 Amy, over at, is having a Valentine sew-along!!! 
Quilt Info:
Maker: Me!!!
Pattern: Bring the Love Valentine Mug Rugs from Amy Chappell
Size: 6" X 9"
Batting: Quilters Dream Poly
Quilting: Straight-line and Matchstick on my home sewing machine.
Interesting Info: Quilter Bonnie filled me in on this little sew-along--so cute and small, how can a quilter resist?!!

Here's my first Bring the Love make: ⤵️ 
My second take: ⤵️
Backing: "Saranghee yo" means "I love you", in Korean, evidently!!! ⤵️
My third take: ⤵️
This is done with fusible applique. Here's a tip from Amy, the designer: stitch around the applique two or three times. It's okay if it's organic! 

My tip: use contrasting thread for the top stitching, to make the shape stand out clearer.

I plan on tacking these on the wall in my studio. Now, can I really stop with just making three?!!

Check out all the makers of this design at #bringthelovesal!!!

Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy
