When you enter the Tradition Gallery, the first quilt has a heart in the center! It’s SO appropriate for today! I feel like it’s a magic moment! I’ll tell you more about the whole quilt tomorrow, but today belongs to this heart. This was the second time I stitched this heart. The first was for a raffle quilt for the Baltimore Heritage Quilters Guild in 1990. When I made my own Baltimore, I had to applique this heart for the center. The pattern came from a quilt in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, and was published in Women’s Day magazine in 1996. It was fun to stitch the flowers, and I love the ribbon in the center! Happy Valentine’s Day!
