Heart Quilt ~~~ Finally

This quilt has been to Mt. Hood three times and finally it’s finished.  It measures 60″ x 76″ and is for my friend, Elizabeth, who is moving this summer.  Her birthday is so close to Valentine’s Day and I usually make her something “heart” related.

The back uses some left over blocks and fabric that Elizabeth found at Goodwill and gave me.

Here’s a close up of the back and binding.

A closer view.  I love the “shimmer” fabric to the left of the “lips”.

Below is a photo we took after I finished piecing it at PMQG’s Sew Day in March in the White River area of Mt. Hood.

Here’s one I took at Trillium Lake while still binding it in the car.  It was super windy.

    This is delightful. Using your friends fabric gift makes it even better. Did you quilt it yourself or send it out – loving the heart motif.

    I love your use of the low volume prints. And the stylized hearts are fun. I admire your use of every moment!

    AnnMarie, another gorgeous quilt. I love the colors, and the way you have it repeated on the back. I’m still trying to figure out how you get your fingers working in that cold!! I’m sure your friend Elizabeth will love it.
