Hearts and Memories
A tiny quilt with lots of memories.
The hearts on this quilt were my first foray into applique. Knowing nothing about the process I basted the hearts onto cardboard and then needle turned sort of in place.
I now know the process I used was similar to using freezer paper.
Freezer paper did exist at this time but no one was using it for quilting.
The pink fabric in the second row was used by my MIL to make a baby dress that both my daughters wore.
The rose floral print fabric was from a dress I made in my university days.
My father carried a photo of myself in the dress with the young man who became DH.
The dress is long since gone but not DH.
