More quilts

How about some more quilts?

The heart appliqued quilt was fun to make, but not under the circumstances. My first husband's mother had a stroke during surgery. A sister-in-law and a niece helped me with this while we spent hours in the waiting room. I showed them how to turn under the 1/4" and baste around the hearts. Busy work. The hearts are hand appliqued and to the best of my memory, the blocks are machine stitched together. All quilting is by hand. This quilt was made in 1987.

The double wedding ring was the first DWR I've ever far it's been the last. It is machine pieced and hand quilted.

Both of these quilts were sold to a customer as gifts for his wife.
