My first crazy quilt hearts for SOH2







The dark purple above and dark green to the right don't photograph well, they are pure silk dupioni and are undershot with a contrasting color. The dragonfly wings above are sheer pale green silk organza ribbon.

The heart on the right shows my first button and bead trail. These hearts were stitched in December 2006 for the January 2007 Sharing Our Hearts 2 Swap in the CQforNewbies group. The colors are chosen from the recipient's favorites.
The heart at the top center is my third heart completed in January 2007 for the Feb 2007 swap. I love how my second button and bead trail turned out. I beaded a lace dragonfly motif and the flowers are silk ribbon embroidery. The recipient wanted unfinished edges. I can't believe I finally got these photos uploaded properly. It took many previous attempts and much frustration.
