My Baby Quilt

Look! It's my baby quilt! As in the one that was made for me when I was a baby. Mom started quilting the year before I was born. I think she didn't know if she was having a boy or a girl so she worked on two different quilts. I don't know what happened to the boy version.

I was looking at this the other day and thinking...maybe this explains my love for appliqued heart quilts. I adore them. I have files full of pictures of them and plans to make about a hundred of them.

My first needle turn hand applique project, naturally, was a heart quilt. The top has been done for I think a couple of years, and yesterday I basted it for hand quilting.


This was the handwork project that I took with me on my semester abroad in Mexico my senior year of college. My second needle turn applique project, still in progress, is...the exact same pattern in different colors and fabrics. True story.


Stay tuned for the finished version of my current hand quilting project that I hope will be finished tomorrow at the latest.

I love everything about hearts! They are just wonderful and so are your quilts.

I like your reason for liking heart quilts. What a wonderful thought for a quilter -- that a quilt you make may engender a lifetime of liking things just like it!
