The Splendid Sampler -- Lots of Love

I am so tickled with The Splendid Sampler block three -- Lots of Love!  Thanks, Melissa Corry, for a great block!

These hearts were very tiny with lots of little pieces.  Several times I wanted to shout "I'm a machine quilter, Jim, not a piecer!"  (Star Trek reference).  I wanted to be certain to show my first attempt, though, to show the impact of re-piecing my block.

Look, icky points:

I was able to fix those points by carefully measuring, carefully trimming each section after piecing, and pinning carefully.
