Sew Monday #15! This block marks the two thirds point in our Treasured Hearts quilt series. This heart is adorned with a beautiful floral lace applique which has been dressed up with a mix of beads. Three butterflies embroidered with silk ribbon fly above the lace. A delicate braided trim finish off the heart applique.
The lace applique reminds me of the extraordinary laces we found in Brussels, Belgium. The handmade laces were exquisite pieces of art. We were told the lace making craft has been passed from generation to generation it could be likened to an inheritance. You could see and feel the pride the people had for this art form and the resource it had provided for many many years.
Hopefully I will pass something of value on to the next generation. Something to be treasured and guarded. Something of importance to be passed on. The most valuable thing possess is my faith and belief in Jesus Christ God’s only son.
