I'm loving the machine-buttonhole stitch technique that I've used in this block and in previous posts here and here. These hearts were cut out as 1 piece rather than 4 and then I just outlined them with the buttonhole/blanket stitch. This would have taken me hours to do if I had tried needle-turn or reverse applique, but today it only took an hour out of my morning.
This is "H-12, Hannah Lou's Hearts", an intermediate-level block.
