Jera's quilt with hearts

Here's the quilt top with the hearts appliqued.  I also added a couple of hearts to the border.  And now there'll be a pause in the making of this quilt, because I want to buy some special fabric for the backing.  I'll probably be able to go to the fabric store in a couple of weeks.  Meanwhile, I've started on the second quilt of the trilogy.  Jenna's quilt is next.  Jenna is the name of my next-in-line granddaughter.  After her, there's Sabrina.  Don't they all have beautiful names?  I have a fourth granddaughter, Sara who goes to University, and I made a denim quilt for her last year, so she's taken care of in the quilt department, for now.  Meanwhile, I have cut out a few strips of fabric for Jenna's name, and decided on the background, which will be off-white.  The quilt will be a different design.  Something free-pieced and I think that I will continue with the appliqued hearts on all three quilts.  This is so much fun for me.  The temperature is already over 100 degrees Fahrenheit where the three granddaughters live in Nevada, so there is no big hurry to finish these quilts!

Fun, fun, fun! I really like that all the girls will get quilts that are similar but different. I'm sure they will too :- )
