This is my sister Diane basting a quilt she started about 20 years ago! She pieced and hand embroidered eight hearts when her daughter Meghan was about four years old. This year became the year to get it done, and get it done she did. Here's some blocks close up with her beautiful hand work:
It started out as a little girl quilt, but now that Meghan is 26 years old, it needed to be suitable for a sophisticated young woman. I think Diane truly accomplished this.
Here she is hard at work sewing on some sashing.
Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of the final quilt! I thought I did but, alas, they are not on my camera. I hope to get some and show you another day. It's a gorgeous quilt, and Meg loves it!
Oh, and it's New Year's Day, so Happy New Year to you all, near and far.
