Betty Pillsbury is a renowned crazy quilter whose business, Green Spiral Herbs, was hit hard in recent flooding. One of the members at Crazy Quilting International suggested we shower her with crazy quilted heart ornaments as a show of support. This is my contribution. I had wanted to get it done and sent off before I headed out to Colorado and I just made it! The last stitches went on last night and I got it assembled. So, one more blog post before I go!
The guidelines were simply to use the template of your choice to make a 5 or 6 inch stuffed heart ornament featuring flowers and/or herbs. We are trying to create a little garden for Betty to replace any plants she has lost in the flooding.
This heart was pieced from a variety of fabrics - silks, satin, moire, brocade, etc. If you follow my blog, you will recognize the lavender motif I wrote about a few days ago. I also added "Lavender" in script at the top of the heart.
So, this will be heading off in the mail now before I start my road trip. Back to packing!
