    Smile A Heart Bouquet for a dear friend

    Organizing my photos and want to share this quilt I made in April for a very special friend who lost her DH suddenly. She loves hearts and I wanted to incorporate them in a quilt hug for her. Wanted to make a fairly quick quilt so I designed this simple applique quilt and let the fabric do the talking Loved how it turned out and she did too. It is about 45 by 55 and the machine quilting took the longest.
