This is my first finished quilt. It is lap sized and paper-pieced. I made it for my MIL who has just been diagnosed with cancer. I wanted it to be something bright and happy, that she could take with her on her trips to hospital, to remind her how much we all love her.
It started with the hearts, which I ended up making my own paper pattern for, and grew from there, basically just making it up as I went along.
The backing was not quite wide enough, so I added a pieced strip down the middle. I then quilted in the ditch in the sashings. I did the binding by hand.
My MIL loved the quilt and is using it now.
