I fell in love with this quilt as I worked on it. It's a donation quilt sent to me from Diane in WA and when I first started quilting, I became frozen in fear as it was someone else's quilt for me to finish and then send on to Wrap a Smile. I decided to tranfer the heart shape from a stencil, but as I did that, it looked like it needed more, so I thought I'd try doing a double line inside the heart. Well, I'm not accomplished enough for that and I'm kind of a WONKY quilter anyhow, so after trying some posies in the center line, I went back to the hearts and started to just make them "primitive" hearts~~and that is when I started really having some fun with them. I finished off by outlining each square and sashing with stitch in the ditch in an off white, while the hearts were done in purple. I was able to use up some purple I had purchased and not used yet, and the end result after washing was a very cozy, comfy quilt. Size 42 x 46 inches.
DSM quilting is quilting on a domestic sewing machine--in my case, a Bernina.
