It is backed in flannel to make it snuggly.
After making quilts for several members of my family, I decided I wanted to make one for my mom. However, as she passed away many years ago, I decided to donate to a fundraiser at the local Hospice. My mom was very involved there, so it seemed appropriate. I dropped it off today and the ladies did a wonderful job of oohing and aahing over it.
We finally had some sun, so I got a few more pictures.
The hearts are a design of my own. The colors have some meaning too...the white ones are for a loved person. (In my case my mom, but you can pick your favorite person.) The colored hearts stand for all the other people in their lives.
This is probably my favorite part. I like how the blue binding ended up next to the blue heart.
I quilted it with a heart pantograph. It was a good thing that the quilt wasn't any longer because I was running out of room under the sewing machine.
And I really like the binding too. I think it nicely sets off the hearts and adds some color.
