    I have started giving these quilts as comfort quilts. It is a simple design that forms a heart. I used chenille and flannel in some squares and cotton in others for variety. I used 4.5 in squares and it measures aprox 44 x 68.

    Thank you. I designed it on graph paper and then used an Excel spreadsheet because it is so easy. PM me and I will be happy to share it with you.

    What a wonderful idea, a two-fold gift, a heart and a quilt.

    Very nice with great meaning. I also would like your pattern to make some for cancer patients.

    Worth the extra effort to see this...thanks to all that helped show this excellent quilt. There is such a need for charity quilts.
