This quilt is the "Lovie for Noel" as a proud grandmother calls it. Daryl, the grandmother in question, gave me the completed cross stitched piece in the middle of this quilt and the old bed skirt that she used for her baby girl, Noel's mother. I don't normally piece together quilts from beginning to end for customers, but Daryl touched my heart and was so sweet and she really wanted her cross stitch work and her daughter's infant bedskirt incorporated into a quilt for her granddaugher, Noel.
I used the bedskirt material as the hearts, decorative bias tape (inspired by the designs of Latifah Saafir), and for the bias binding on the scalloped borders.
This quilt was a labor of love for me because my own grandmother Bernice (of blessed memory) was one of the brightest shining stars in my life. Anything to support a grandmother's love is a special project for me.
