Decided to put away some of the more Christmasy quilts and dug deep in the closet for my heart quilts. The yellow bordered heart applique is one I worked on while my dad was ill with heart problems. It was finished after he passed away in 2007. I call it “Hearts Times Two”. It has appliqued hearts in candy heart colors and in the alternate block there is a corded trapunto heart in white. These blocks are surrounded by a leaf appliqued vine in multiple colors. All needle turned.
The other heart quilt in burgundy is my A Dozen Hearts” done by fusible applique. A second one of this particular was done in 30’s fabric but I gave this to a friend of mine who had just lost her mother after a long illness.
