A New Quilter is Born

This was the most recent quilt that I quilted on my HQ16. It was pieced (using a disappearing nine-patch technique) by a 9-year-old granddaughter of a friend of mine (the friend who lets me play on her quilts). I think the young girl did a fabulous job as a new quilter! It's heartwarming to see the younger generation getting interested in this art form.

Since the backing had hearts on it, I just free-motioned hearts in all of the large blocks using some variegated Rainbows thread (by Superior). Click on a photo if you want to see a closeup.
