Entwined Hearts

I completed the top for a wall hanging last night.

Trish Allthingscrafty from the Quilters with Modern Tools Facebook page had share a picture of the Valentine Wall hanging that she was working on.  Hers was more pink and reminded me of the Breast Cancer Ribbon.

I shared with the group that I needed to make on of these for my mom who was scheduled to have a masectomy this past Thursday.  Mom's surgery was successful and now she is home resting and waiting for the results of the lymph node testing.  This wall hanging represents for me, my love for my mom and all the prayers that were said and are continuing to be said for her recovery.

I searched my stash and couldn't really find any pink.  So I selected a couple of reds instead.
Big surprise that I would have red in my stash!!  Then I added some white Fairy Frost.

I had been wanting to attempt a Storm at Sea quilt so this wall hanging gave me the opportunity.  I used Trish's picture to help me recreate the wall hanging in EQ7, then used my Marti Michell Perfect Piecing templates Set C to cut out the fabric.  It went together very quickly, now I have to get it quilted.
