Fun in my fabric world....

First applique.

Here is a pic of my first attempt at applique...I made this quilt over 20 years ago...covered the cardboard shapes then stitched them on to the background.
It has hung over our bed in many different homes since then.
It has shared our journey.
The fabrics are fading...many are Liberty...but I still feel comforted by it & remember stitching all of those hearts...in some ways it feels not so long ago.


I am working on a quilt to take it's place...I think a rest or this little quilt is needed!

Wow! VERY similar to a baby quilt my mother made when I was pregnant with my daughter (who is 20). I'll have to blog about it one of these days.

It's a lovely quilt and I'm sure it evokes many wonderful memories. I'm sure your new one will be a beauty.
