HEARTS AND FLOWERS

Width: 9" Length: 11.5"

Materials/Techniques: Bottom layer is vintage dress fabric, and that is covered with organza on which I printed the following poem over and over in different fonts.

My heart to you is given:
Oh, do give yours to me;
We'll lock them up together, And throw away the key.
by Frederick Saunders

The large heart is a pretty paper napkin I couldn't bear to throw away that is glued to fabric with gel medium. The flower is made with fabric scraps and a grungeboard heart colored with gold Rub 'n Buff.

Artist's Statement: When I was researching valentines, I found the poem and the napkin was in sight and the piece just fell together!

This quilt earned $48 for Alzheimer's research.
