Hearts All Quilted And Ready To Go

I finished the "Let Us Count The Ways We Love You" Quilt and it is now ready to go wrap up
a special person with all the love we have. The quilting is straight lines and the binding is blue.


The total size of the quilt is 54" x 68" and I added a little corner pocket on the back for love notes.


It was a beautiful day for taking pictures, even at 91 degrees!
The bad part was all the critter holes I had to avoid to get the quilt pic.
Yikes! Snakes, lizards, rats, or who-knows-what was living in those holes.
Luckily, the red rocks were especially beautiful so dodging creepy things was worth it!

I like the straight quilting on this one, really works beautifully.
I really love the use of colors and the negative spaces that sets it off, now i want to make one;)

That is a beautiful heart quilt Carol! The quilting is nice and simple which makes the hearts stand out and gives a modern feel to the quilt too. I am sure this will be a well loved quilt.

Carol the quilt is stunning. The straight line quilting is perfect, but is the quilt actually resting on a barbed wire fence? What a brave soul you are.

Nita said...

I love this quilt...traditional and modern alll at once. Would be perfect for anyone, but especially for a teen or under 30- something. The hearts are so perfect...are they applique? Your choice of location for the pictures also suits the quilt perfectly. :)

Very pretty heart quilt. Utah looks a lot like Colorado. Not much grass. Only half of Colorado is Colorful. lol
