Rewind

Since the Quilt Festival I have made lots of new friends - so fun! One in particular is Kelly. She is a shop owner and quilter - and recently asked friends of her blog send in pictures of quilts, and the story to go with it, to post on her blog. Here is my entry -


"Quilt Full of Love

I'm excited to share the quilt I made for Ella a few years ago. It was made with a lot of love - 99 hearts in all! I worked on this quilt for months, at the time I was pregnant with our 4th and had yet to make a quilt for our oldest. Baby quilts are easier and faster :) I made this quilt with a valentine's fabric collection, Hearts Aflutter by Sandy Gervais. I had a plan and it changed a lot while I was piecing all the blocks. In the end I have 6" hearts sashed and framed! Ella loves her quilt and proudly shows it off whenever possible - that does my heart a lot of good!"

I think this quilt was the beginning of my creative therapy, all the more reason to love it! I did post about it, and a few others, when I first started my blog last year - thus the post title - Rewind :)
