Twelve Days of Hearts, Flowers and Friendship: Day 8

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 8:

Red Heart Quilt, 77 x 66", by Therese May

This quilt delights anyone who loves RED, the color of love, associated with Saint Valentine's Day.  It is nearly a whole cloth quilt except for the horizontal band of machine appliqued hearts.  Each heart is satin stitched and quilted in different colors of thread, with the thread tails left loose, providing extra texture 

Red Heart Quilt was shown in the special exhibit of Therese May's work, titled Quilting=Drawing=Quilting, at the 2016 Pacific International Quilt Festival.

  1. So cute.Love the name of the quilt.

  2. This is a wonderful, modern quilt. Look at all that negative space for quilting, how yummy! And yet we rarely see solid red used this way, so it's fresh and unique.
