Cutting and Reassembling the Mended Heart Quilt Blocks
Using a square ruler and your rotary cutter, square the edges of the block so that your block is 8 1/2 inches square. Now you have two finished Mended Heart blocks!
Project ideasAs I mentioned in the beginning, you can use these blocks in a number of ways. I plan to use bias tape to cover the raw edges and make small wall hangings to give to friends. Another fun thing to do is to find a square picture frame and mount the block inside the frame. If you make a block for each holiday, you can easily swap out the block as the seasons change.
If you are interested in piecing the blocks together, you will need to use narrow sashing strips (or bias tape) on both the front and back to cover the raw edges and stabilize the blocks.
