Years ago, my parents gave my husband and I, a very special gift. They had a good friend who just happened to be an accomplished seamstress and quilt maker. They gave each of their five children the privilege of working with this dear, skilled lady, and designing a quilt for our homes.
It was such a privilege to work with her, and her insights and expertise were most impressive.
Today I am sharing the quilt that I designed and she so expertly sewed and quilted. Our bedroom at the time of this event, was painted forest green, with white ceiling and white woodwork. Since I have I always liked red hearts, together her and I created a lattice type look for the quilt, with flowers, hearts and vines, lightly scattered throughout the lattice work. I made many visits to her pretty, little basement room, where her impressive quilting business took place. I was most impressed with the detail, the stitching, and the creativity this lady exhibited, throughout every visit.
Here the quilt is on our guest room bed. It is on top of a down comforter, but it's beauty is evident to all who stay here.
You can click on any picture to enlarge it and see the expert hand stitching with each stitch. Even after all these years, the hearts and flowers still bring a smile to my face when I walk in the room.
Today, this wonderful lady continues to attend our church, but due to physical difficulties, she no longer has the privilege of quilting. I wish it was possible for me to share with you, all of the masterpieces she has created in her quilting years, and all the awards that she earned from it all. Today, I honor this humble, talented woman, and the beauty that she added to our home those many years ago and to this day.
More hearts from our small powder room, in this Valentine's week.
Wishing you moments this week, when it is confirmed to you, that you are loved and treasured!
Thank you for stopping by today! I appreciate each of you!
