The Quilt With A Heart...28 Of Them

This isn't done because it needs the batting, backing, binding and then quilting but this is the design. The quilt top, shown here, won't change. The pattern is from the applique class I took last Sunday. All the hearts are appliqued. That means they are individually cut out and then sewn by hand onto the fabric. You turn a small seam allowance under to get the outline of the heart. Not a big quilt, 27" by 31". I think I was born to applique.

The most important thing is that I am back quilting big time. Last week was a horrible week, but I got through it and came out the other end smiling.

Thanks to all of you who sent hugs and greetings. They were much appreciated.

Going out for sushi tonight. We both love it.
