Friends with Hearts
Some days ago one friend within the quilt community here in Norway, were speaking to other quilting friends on the internet. During this chat, she became aware of “one of us” had had a heart operation. The same lady also wanted to make herself a Heart quilt in red and white.
What would a quilting friend do in a situation like this? Yes you got it right.
She sent out an e-mail to each and every one of us she had the private address to, asking if we would like to participate in this “Friends of Heart action”, and pass this email out to everybody who knows her, without disclose the secret.
Of course I wanted to join. I started immediately to make my tribute to Sigrid. We didn’t sign up. We just got ahead and did it!

The mailing date was set to August 30. (One week would be enough) The thought were to fill her mailbox with hearts without spoiling the surprise up front. My hearts for her left Thursday 30 as planned.

Beautiful hearts, Nina! I love both blocks. I just had to pass on a heart swap. No time. But if I had, I'd have loved doing either of these blocks. The fabrics are perfect, and I'm sure she was thrilled to get them, too.

Tusen takk for hjertene Nina, og for en overraskelse:-)). Jeg gleder meg til å bruke dem i quilten min.

Nina, these are such pretty hearts - and so sweet of you to send them. I'm sure they were much appreciated and brightened her day.
