Heart to Heart

This is a miniature quilt wallhanging which holds special memories for me.  Do you have one of those?  Firstly the background fabric was tie-dyed with a lovely bunch of ladies at a quilting retreat held in Johannesburg.  We had so much fun learning the techniques, seeing everyone's different colours and I loved my fabric.  As it was so bright I wasnt sure what I was going to make with it.  Then when I started the Craft-Time Group meeting monthly at the Church, I launched the heart wallhanging as a first project, swapping hearts amongst us for those who wanted too.  I was the only one using the needleturn technique for my hearts so I did not swap.  I knew my bright fabric with hand-dyes would be great for this.  I added hand embroidered flowers to the hearts and I now love my bright and cheerful heart wallhanging.

What do you think?
