I got the pattern for the hearts at the above website and then added 16 patches for the filler blocks. I could see this one as a Quilt of Valor, but it is going to my friend whose mom is battling breast cancer. I hope she loves it! I sure do and will have to make myself one just like it. Yeah, who am I kidding? I don't think I have kept one quilt I've made for myself.
Today was the worst migraine in a very long time. I've felt so sick all day and am happy that I have a hobby like quilting where I can sit and mindlessly sew all day long. I finally figured out how to make my sewing chair comfortable for long periods at the sewing machine. No fancy back rest for me. I just rolled up an old towel and can position it just right in the small of my back for support. Wish I could quit my job and just sit and sew all day, every day :) Retirement is way too long off.
