Heart's Delight

Today I put everything else on the back burner, as I realized it was time to send in my entry to the SAFEchild Heart Gala auction. The quilt was finished, but I realized I had not added the hanging sleeve or label yet.

Heart's Delight, 2008

12.5" x 12.5"

Wholecloth sheer top quilt, trapuntoed, shadow trapuntoed, quilted and tinted with Neocolor II water-soluble wax crayons. Swarovski crystal embellishment.

With the ultimate vision of eliminating child abuse in Wake County, SAFEchild delivers support and education to families by helping them break negative parenting patterns, improve communication and relationship skills, and take advantage of community resources.

A cause dear to my own heart.

At first glance, the title made me think of my favorite ice cream parlor from childhood - Heart's Delight! (right next to Doggie Diner, of course!)
