This quilt was made a couple of years ago on Valentine's Day to give to my Husband Wonderful's Aunt Lucy who turned 90 years old. I made up the design using machine applique and Linda Monasky of the Bear Paw Gallery in Alton, NH did the longarm quilting. I was on a NO BUY at the time, so it was all from stash. I made the pattern for the hearts by folding a piece of paper and cutting out that "almost-an-ice-cream-cone" shape. I did a few until I got one that I liked. The red fabric on the back was a piece of rayon plush velvet that was given to me by a friend who knows that I sew. She had been using it as a Christmas store window display for her tanning salon which had to close.
Aunt Lucy is still going strong and she loves her quilt!
Thank you for your support!
My husband, Felix and I are still best friends after 40+ years of marriage. Although we have no kids, we spoil our dog rotten on our 20+ acre hobby farm in beautiful downtown Gilmanton Iron Works, New Hampshire, U.S.A.
