There was a time …

There was a time that I could put my hands on any book with any pattern I’d seen. Tonight I was looking for this quilt … I thought it was from a Sandy Bonsib book. I don’t have the year I made it logged but I can tell from the photo it was taken in Marietta so it had to be between 2002 and 2006. I’m pretty sure Mom made a green version too. Moving so often has turned into kind of a blessing in that I can remember things based on where we were living at a specific time that I otherwise might not be able to pin down.

I have a bunch of pink fabrics pulled and I want to make a heart quilt so I think I’d like to remake this one and I went looking for the book I thought it might be in. No success … but in looking through my books, I found a bunch that I hadn’t looked at in a while that I want to page through ….

I can remake the quilt without the pattern but it would have been nice to have the heart template!

  1. I’m sure with your expertise you’ll be able to cut out your own heart for a template – on paper of course haha. Nice looking quilt.

  2. That was such a sweet pink heart quilt. It really is fun to go through the books again. As I purged my quilting books this winter I had some fun looking through them again for inspiration.

  3. Mary, I am intrigued by the basket “thingee” in front of your fireplace (I don’t know what to call it lol). Is it a faux fireplace? Does it put out any heat? I love it and I have never seen anything like it! Hope I don’t sound too nosy and this is not a quilt question so of course I understand if you don’t want to answer.

  4. I am going through my old magazines and I saw this just a few days ago. But don’t ask me which one! This is such a cute quilt.

  5. Really cute heart quilt, hope you can find the pattern! My husband and I have also moved a lot and we also remember things by what house we lived in at the time. We have moved 11 times in 37 years and thinking about doing it again.
