Hearts of love

A while ago I talked about the row by row projects our Sweet Pea ladies were working on this year.

The row by row is supposed to take the best part of this year to complete but we fast tracked Moira's as she wants to give it as a gift to a friend who is undergoing chemo therapy for breast cancer.

I felt sure that once Moira had the blocks back it would not be long before she had them pieced together.

She brought the pieced quilt top to Sweet Peas this week and the blue border really pulled together the colours in the heart blocks.

Linda had offered to machine quilt it for her and it has just come off the frame.

Here's just a sneak peek of some of the wonderful quilting Linda has been doing on the quilt.  The seams just seem to melt into the background as the hearts pop up as a result of the stitching.

I feel sure the recipient will be very touched by our combined efforts.

I love all those hearts, and the recipient will, too.

Linda's quilting makes each heart even more special.

I never cease to be amazed and blessed by how Linda turns something beautiful into something breath-taking with her quilting!

Linda's quilting really makes a difference, dosn't it. Your Sweet Pea member's friend will surely love this. 6 months chemo is a hard thing to be going through.

That is so beautiful . What a lovely response to someone going through a rough time. Im sure she is going to be thrilled.

This quilt is pure eye candy!
