Online Quilt Festival
This is my entry for the Online Quilt Festival over at Park City Girl's blog
This is one of the first quilts I made it was in 2003 I made it for my grandmother. She loved pansy's so that was my starting point, I found the lavender fabric in a box that belonged to my great-grandmother so I wanted to include it in my grandmothers quilt.
I used fusible to do the hearts and then hand blanket stitched around each one. I then pieced the squares with the hearts together and added the borders.
I machine quilted it in the ditch.
When my grandmother passed about this last year the quilt was returned to me. It sat on the foot of her bed when she made her bed every morning, She didn't want to use it because it might get dirty LOL!
I love this quilt just because it reminds me of her not because of any great technical achievement.
