Heart Quilt – Janice Schindeler
© 2010 By Janice Schindeler
I took Gail Garber’s Flying Geese class at Quilting Adventures because I wanted to learn her unique techniques, even though I tend to make more folksy kind of quilts. I struggled with the design phase of the class until I decided to use her techniques with a folk art icon – the heart. Then every fell into place. Originally I wanted to use the heart as a component in a larger quilt – as the stamp on love letter quilt to my husband. But that project proved to big for me. So I turned the cheerful heart into its own little heart shaped quilt. I love Gail’s techniques and am using it now to make a cupcake quilt for my daughter and soon will be designing tomato slice using the flying geese to accompany my burger quilt.
