The Hearth is the Heart of Home

The Hearth is the Heart of the Home - A Redwork and Log Cabin block quilt for Valentine's Day. The Redword blocks are sewn on a white on white background with a rose pink print heart overlay. The embroidery is worked both on the white background and between the white and the rose pink. These pictures reflect the story of Sue and her Golden Anniversary Valentine's Day, which you can read in the blog a few days ago. The Redwork blocks include: Sue's Chilly Walk, Girl with Tea & Kittens, James & Sue Courting, The Kiss, Mother & Child
Valentine, Girl with Cookie & Kitten, Sue by the Hearth, and
Twilight Sweethearts. Girl with Tea & Kittens is shown above. This is an easy quilt to construct and a good project for beginners who like embroidery work. The quilt is sized for a twin bed. Watch for the pattern to go on sale at Prairie Cottage Corner soon. Happy Stitching.
