These last 3 days, I’ve made a quilt for my dear friend, Penny K. in Yakima. She loves pink and asked for a quilt to help comfort her in as she battles several terminal illnesses.
I went to work pulling some favorite Civil War reproduction fabrics and I adapted a heart quilt I made many years ago to make something special for her so she will feel my love.
I turned the edges of the hearts with my spray starch method, using a cardboard template. The hearts were appliqued with a simple top-stitch, fast and easy.
I love the way it all came together.
My friend, Penny Stephenson, did the machine quilting for me. Two Pennys I love came together for this project.
She did a beautiful job!
Today it went in the mail, special delivery, with loads of love.
