    I made this quilt back in 2003. Saw it on Simply Quilts. It is made with eight inch doilies for the hearts.

    That's so pretty...I love it!! Did you use heart-shaped doilies, or cut larger ones to look like hearts?

    I've used larger doilies with scalloped edges glue down on a piece of fabric which you cut into four pieces. I've tried to find a link for it on Hgtv without luck.

    Searched & found the pattern is in the book: Doily Magic Sweet & Simple by Sharon Rexford Ericson. Amazon.com has new & used copies for sale.

    Beautiful! The pineapple design on the doily was my Grandmother's favorite.

    Beautiful, I now have another idea to add to my list. I need to live for another 100 years to get them all done.

    This quilt by Elinor Burns is what inspired me to making quilts. As I have said before I can't quilt but I try. Baby or Lap quilts I can do myself. I'll be sending out the big ones.
