For Helen

This beautiful batik quilt was made by Helen for a friend in hospital.  I wanted to quilt something cheerful and organic that would soften the piecing lines slightly.  I thought of echoed flowers, with hearts as some of the centers to reflect how much love she is surrounded by. 

Little did I know she collects items with heart themes so the quilting couldn't have been more perfect.  This one really made me feel privileged to do what I do!
