A Labour of Love...

Does this face not say it ALL?!  

Yup, Hazel is looking mighty happy in this picture...as she should!

 Every week, Hazel has brought her little applique 'kit' to Heritage, then visited...while she hand stitched her applique motifs!  Yes, we watched her take every little stitch! :o)
Finally she announced that she was working on her border pieces....hallelujah!  

Once the quilt was pieced, Hazel worked her magic with the quilting!  Gorgeous!

The red blocks have the same outline quilting shape as the applique motifs!

Yup, there is nothing like a finish, is there Hazel!!

And NO, I'm not going to tell you how many months that applique kit came back and forth to Heritage!  It's best that we not go there!  After all...what happens at Heritage, stays at Heritage!  Let's just say that it was a labour of love!  

Well done, Hazel!  She's a beauty!!  

Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting!~P
