Twelve Days of Hearts, Flowers and Friendship: Day 3

Welcome to our tribute to Valentine's Day quilts ! With its emphasis on love, kindness and caring for others, Valentine's Day is one of our favorite celebrations. We're calling it "Twelve Days of Hearts, Flowers, and Friendship."  Let's continue with Day 3 :

I Carry Your Heart by Sherri Ashford, quilted by Ruby Worrell

When we saw this quilt at the Quilt Arizona!  show, we were very moved by the message on the card. Sherri writes, "This quilt was made and designed for my daughter during her bout with cervical cancer. I used the freedom of the naked girl with our poem, 'I carry your heart'. It depicts her freedom, and that I am always with her." 

Closeup, I Carry Your Heart

Sherri's work was quilted by Ruby Worrell on a track mounted machine. In this closeup, you can see some of the valentine hearts that were quilted into the background. With the abstract shapes of the heart and the surrounding flowers, this quilt has a whimsical, carefree look, but the theme of Sherri's work is deeply meaningful and most touching.
