In a little group I belong too , crazy quilters around the world, we have the habit to send a cq heart to each other when we go trough a sad time in our life.
It was my cq friend and swap-sister in 2008, Hideko who lost her mother a few weeks ago, so I made a comfort heart for her. Most of the others in the group will do that also. When Hideko likes it, she can make a little memory quilt of the hearts.
This heart-block is 15 cm. 6 inch.
