Sonia Ruiz – Series #2 – Sacred Heart – Patchwork
Continuing with the heart theme, my second sacred heart quilt is made in a crazy quilt technique with fabric scraps, Gutermann #12 variegated threads, lace, ribbons, eyelash yarn, beads and vintage buttons.
I first pieced all the light fabrics, then the colored fabrics. With the Gutermann thread I used the decorative stitches on my Janome sewing machine on all the seams of the heart fabric. I then did reverse appliqué. I placed wool batting under the heart to give it a fuller, trapunto look. I embellished it with bits and pieces of laces, ribbons, yarns, beads, pearls, vintage buttons, a scapular from one of my children and some jewelry pieces that my dad had given me.
