As long as it is hearts season...I have no shame in showing you my first two quilts I ever made!!! This was way back when we used cardboard templates, drew around them and cut the fabric with scissors~yes that might date me a bit, hehe. But I am sure I must have only been 2 at the time, LOL. All the hearts are appliqued on and yikes this was poly cotton fabric, and notice it is only tied. And it doesn't show wear, but then it doesn't get used much either.
It has been stored for a long time but I just had to get it out and take it's pic so it wouldn't feel left
out ;-) Back in the day when we only had poly cotton, cardboard, and scissors, I cut all those dresden plates out and appliqued them onto a sheet. And that my friends is hand quilting to represent the block divisions!! Oh the back is also a sheet. I wouldn't be surprised to find a blanket used for the batting either as my mom did that a lot. Wow we've come a long way baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wishing everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!
