Hearts and Hands

Last night at the Trillium Embroidery Guild the finished quilt was revealed that incorporated the squares we stitched last spring in honour of one of our members who succumbed to breast cancer.

It measures 52" x 61 1/2".

It will be on display at the CreativFestival this fall and then will be auctioned by The Quilt, "a spirit-raising visual celebration supporting people living with cancer". There are over 400 quilts in this year's collection.

My square is in the top row, second from the left.

This is a closeup of the bottom left corner.

The piecing and sashing were very cleverly done to accommodate our 22 squares. The smaller hearts shared a square.

I'm really proud to have been part of this project.
