Heart quilts and giving back

My mother always says that to cheer yourself up, you need to do something for others.  So, thanks to yesterday's Guild sit and sew, I was able to prepare some heart blocks that others had made.  Today I put these into a quilt top.  I belong to the Sunshine committee in our guild.  We put together 7 and a half inch heart blocks into quilts for Guild members who are sick or injured.  Sometimes it is a challenge to arrange the variety of "7.5" inches:)
 This outside border I got from the Springs sale last month.  Oh, it was so hard for me to cut it because I love it...but just listened to myself and did it the "Nike way"!  Now it will go off to our Terri for quilting.
It is getting harder to get a good picture in my backyard.  Spring has brought so much grown foliage blocking out the light.

That quilt is adorable! May I borrow the design to make a baby quilt for a friend?
