    Is there a way to do the heart in a,larger size. My grand daughter is wanting a quilt with Hearst, but the size posted on FB would be to small.
    I would like it around 5 inches width.

    Thanks for advice.

    Just saw this today and I love it.

      Dear Deborah,

      I suppose you are talking about the chicken scratch embroidery. One easy idea would be to use larger checks to help you to bring out 5″ hearts. Else, try to work on enlarging the border of the heart to make it bigger and then fill it.
      Hope this suggestion helps. 🙂
