One Pink Heart Quilt

This quilt was made for a young friend recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  When I asked what color she would like her quilt to be, she said white.  Then she suggested a single pale pink heart in the center.  I honored her color choices but the heart is place slightly off center.  The quilt is not a true whole cloth quilt but has that look.  The center is a 30 in X 42 in piece of plain white fabric quilted as if it where made of 6 in blocks.The border is of white-on-white striped fabric with mitered corners.
The quilt is machine pieced and quilted.  The heart is hand appliqued.  The quilt measures 46 in X 57 in.

This next photo shows the pink heart and quilting a litter better.

This photo shows the border quilting.

To be honest, I don't have good hands for quilting or sewing for that matter but I really like handmade stuff. I'm trying to learn how to quilt, though, and I think started with the cute pink heart; maybe I'll be off to a good start.

Very pretty Ramona. I love the simplicity. And the pink with the white.
