I've finally finished the beast that has caused me such discomfort in many ways. I finished the top for this quilt within about 2 weeks of starting it, hand appliqueing all the hearts. I showed my mother and she was thrilled to bits with the top. I told her that quilting it would have to wait.....however I had not anticipated the changes that would occur in both our lives over the next couple of years.
Now 5 yes that's right, 5yrs later I have the finished article to present to her when she arrives here in a couple of weeks.
Hearts for my Mother.
Slightly closer view of the hearts.
