Some Native American's baby
will be held cozy in this quilt. I can attest to this since even while I
was working on it the warmth was nice.
The difficulty in making
these quilts is not the putting of it together. It is rather the problem
of keeping a light color fabric appropriate for a baby. This was solved by
cutting the hearts here out of brightly patterned Indian motive prints.
They then become just a splash of strong color on the off white
The quilted base is no more
than a scrap I had left over from some project. Around the edges of the
heart is eyelet cotton lace and the outer edges have this same lace. It
is true there isn't a great amount of skill and craftsmanship here but it
is a fairly quick and easy way to sew up a quilt for someone who is
looking for something special other than just what they could buy in a
department store. A label with your name sewn to one edge underneath
shows the creation to be an original.
