The quilt top is ready. 112 x 132 cm. 44,8 x 52,8 inch.
I have made a quilt top from a part of the hearts I have swapped during the last year.
I have added two hearts made by myself.
First I have reverse appliqued the hearts with normal sewing thread. After that I have done a feather stitch on top to make it stronger.
This quilt is for a little girl, about 5, 6, years old.
I didn't use the hearts with SRE on it, because I think it will be disappointing when you get a quilt and it becomes damaged after very short time in use.
In the USA there is an organisation founded by Sue Nebeker which collect quilt for soldiers who come back, wounded, from a war.
But also she collect quilts for children who lost their daddy in a war, f.e. in Iraq.
This organisation will finish this quilt with batting, binding and quilting.
To make a point: I am against any war ! and special the Iraq war.
But all those children without a dad in the future deserve a comfort quilt.
I really hope that this quilt with all the butterflies on it and a butterfly border will give a little girl a little comfort in her sad and sorrow days.
