One of the ladies in a quilting group I belong to recently lost her sister to cancer.
Some of our group have decided to make 'healing heart' quilt blocks for her in her favourite colours, blue and yellow.
I don't always take up the call to do this, even though I think it is a lovely gesture for anyone going through difficult times.
When I do make them, I like to incorporate a touch of crazy quilting into the traditional quilting blocks.
Many years ago I created a crazy quilt block in foundation piecing for a heart shape and it is an all time favourite for me. I have used them on many greeting cards as well and they are always a pleasure to make.
