The hearts on the quilt were appliqued using the embroidery machine and the quilted hearts were done using the placement stitch-out from the applique pattern. I made this quilt using Sharon Pedersen's 'reversible quilt' technique and I'm very pleased with the result, but it did entail a lot of hand stitching!!

Beautiful job Shirley - I just love heart quilts. Well done too for all the hand stitching. I've given up on that - I've had 2 Carpal Tunnel operations on both hands and they don't handle "hand" sewing too well these days. Love and blessings Chris

Thanks, Chris. Sorry to hear about your hands, machine stitching would have spoilt this quilt as it would not have been easy to sew in the ditch and catch the bindings properly on the back! *4U

Lovely quilt, Shirley. I'll have to look up what the reversible quilt technique entails. At a guess you sew the quilted blocks together with the thin strips and have to do one of the seams by hand.

1 comment
shirleysisson by shirleysisson 19 May 2009

Thanks, Mops. Yes you've got the idea. You can have a 2nd design on the reverse side - hence the name reversible, but this one has plain pink flannel on the back. *4U
