Scrappy heart potholder

I came across a tutorial for paper piecing and since I have wanted to try the technique for a while I thought I would just go for it.

Pattern

The scrappy heart pattern (pdf) can be downloaded from the Sewing Mamas website. You will need to log in to download the pattern.

You can supplement the paper piecing tutorial by Vanessa with this Youtube video tutorial.
