The Start of Something New

I bought this book back in February 1995 with the intention of making a baby quilt for my first newborn.

I chose this pattern to be my first newborn's quilt because I love the simplicity of this design.

This quilt was hand-pieced since I did not own a sewing machine back then and for the hearts, I did a needle turn applique following the instructions from the book. 

I hand-quilted it and the whole process took me about a month from start to finish. 

The quilt measures 32" x 40".

I should have used a darker fabric for the hearts to make them pop up (lesson learned) but am still pleased with how it turned out since it was the first quilt I've ever made.
