Danny's Heart Quilt

 Sooo much inspiration 
coming from the 
Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild on Saturday.
Danny Heyen (Mommy For Reals)
brought her finished 
King Sized
Heart Quilt
 300 Fabrics :) 
Fussy cut hearts
Sewn in Pieced Sections
Lots of partial seams
 Danny graphed the quilt out first before construction.
4 inch, 6 inch, 8 inch and 12 inch blocks
Notice there is a Dark and Light Contrast
Some of the hearts are light with dark backgrounds
and other hearts are
dark with light backgrounds.
 And equally impressive is the fact that Danny just 
gave birth to a second daughter just a few months ago.
These young moms, with their busy schedules
continue to lead, especially in the Modern Quilting World.
 Danny also brought 
her Maple Leaf Quilt for Show and Tell
 In December our PMQG hosted a 
Low Volume/ Text Print Exchange
A great way to gather backgrounds 
for a scrappy quilt.
 One of the things I love about Modern Quilting 
is that they often take a Traditional Design
and bring it back to life with upscaled size and prints.
Beautifully done, Danny!

goes to show for some that say they have no time to quilt because they work outside of home and have children that it can be done - you just have to organize your time so you have time to play also! and quilting is the perfect playtime so you have a stress reducer -- the heart quilt is lovely.
