My mother made a quilt in this style as well. It's interesting to see how two identical quilts can turn out differently. Mom used more vibrant colors and a dark border, but the greatest difference was shown in our stitching. She chose small buttonhole embroidery stitches, and I chose large (to show more color). My sister, who doesn't like to sew, now has mom's heart quilt and treasures it. I need to remember to ask her for a picture of it so I can share it with you too!
PS: Sis has since decided to give it to me for safekeeping. Thank you, sis.
