Wool Heart Sampler block


My quilt guild: The Quilt Guild of the Greater Houston  ( www.qgghouston.org)has a biennial show and there is always an auction to benefit the guild. 
My Woolie Bee, is making a sampler quilt with 6.5" blocks. It is all wool, of course. 
The background is the same; but the heart center is where you can do anything as long as it has a heart.
 This is my block. It is one to rest the eyes; not to call attention to itself.
 It is embroidered with the Palestrina stitch around the hearts, cross stitch in the center of the small heart and beads on the large heart.
I know this talented group will make an amazing quilt.

The next show is on May 5-6, 2017.
It is called "Joy of Quilts."
