January Block Lotto

String Pieced heart

By the time you turn in this block we will be in valentines month, so I figured, lets go with that theme.

Fabrics you will need:

lots of 1" strips of pink, red, and white prints.
White: one 7" square, two 4" squares, and two 3.5"x 6.5" rectangles.

We are doing a reverse string pieced heart...the white is the heart, and the string piecing is the background.  Start with a bunch of red, white and pink print 1" strips.
Now it's time to build some string pieced squares.  You will need two 4" squares, and one 7" square.  At this time, cut from white fabric, two 4" squares and one 7" square.
Ok, time for HST's.  I love, them, I know some people don't though. Check back on this great tutorial, here, if you need. Use method #3.  Make sure you sew the squares together along the strips, not across.
I missed taking a few photos here, but put your hst's together.
Your next step is to place the two rectangles in, and sew it all together.

Hope this is pretty clear, even with a few photos missing.
As always, one block = one ticket, so make one, make two, make a whole bunch of hearts.
