Crazy Heart Tutorial

 Crazy Hearts are so much fun to make!
You can make them in "solid" patterns as I did in this wall hanging.
I made this wall hanging in 2011.
Or, if you look up-close at some of these hearts below, you can make your hearts "scrappy". There  are no limits or "rules" when it comes to creating Crazy Hearts. 

Also, a good resource for creating "letters&words" is: Word Play Quilts by Tonya Ricucci. 
Sooo if ya find ya have a pile of scraps laying around, and want to make some Crazy Hearts yourself, perhaps for a table runner, pillow, wall hanging or even a quilt, 
here's a little tutorial I put together for ya: 













Once ya get the hang of it, they are just way too fun to make! I've had my own pile growing for a year or two. But! Today, I'm finally sewing them together to make a quilt top for my ALYoF February goal. YAH!! Hope ya have fun! Val:)
