Twelve Days of Hearts, Flowers and Friendship: Day 10

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 10 (Passion):

Passion, ~44 x 38", by Janet M. Bergman (Marco Island, Florida)

Passion was awarded second prize in the 12th annual Quilters Treasure fabric challenge (Cardinal Red).This original design is constructed with half black, half white "bricks" with a large heart on the left, and lips on the right, in a cut out design. Janet Bergman says, "I belong to a quilt group that challenged us to make a quilt with "Openings" so I incorporated that into this design." The openings of the heart and lips were finished with matching binding.

The bricks, made of interesting black and white fabrics, were embroidered in silver thread with words appropriate to the theme such as "Passion", "Desire" and "Love."  This quilt toured the U.S.A. in 2016.

  1. Interesting cutouts. I think I would have called this one "smack". Thanks for sharing.

  2. Oh, there are some fabulous fabric choices here. I love the vintage print and the one that looks like it might be a ledger page.

  3. How clever and creative! It's just beautiful!

  4. love everything about this one. I love hearts, but I really love lips and collect any fabric that has them. You married them nicely here.
