2012 UFO #3 - Done and Delivered

My 2012 UFO #3 is a Four-Patch Quilt made with Heart Materials from my mother's fabric stash.  I got the idea from some quilts that I saw at the LWML Convention in June, 2011 in Peoria, IL. 

Here is the material all cut out and ready to sew into four-patches

















90% of this fabric was my mom's which she had collected because she had heart disease and had a triple by-pass in 1991.  I supplemented the red and white hearts (far right in second row) and the Valentine's Day hearts (second from left in second row) both of which were fat quarter purchases.  I was able to dig through my stash of plain fabrics to find coordinating colors for the heart fabris.

 I decided to send this quilt out to be quilted at Country Threads and was thrilled with the results. 


















Here is the full quilt and the pieced backing that I did.

I made the binding a combination of all of the plain fabrics which I am very happy with as it plays off of all the other fabrics.

This quilt was given as a gift to Ruth Reeve, my husband's niece.  Ruth is a beautiful young woman who has devoted herself to helping others through mission trips and serving as a counselor at camps for handicapped individuals.  Because of Ruth's big heart I wanted her to have this quilt and I know that my mom would be happy with my choice of recipients!!
