I have had this idea for a quilt for a few months now. I am both happy and sad that I was able to make it. I made it for my Grandmother, who has been hospitalized a number of times for heart complications. Most recently was just last year, with multiple visits to the hospital and the threat of another surgery. It was after that time that I thought I should make her a 'hospital' quilt, for the next time she might find herself there. Of course the only pattern that came to mind is the plus sign.
But it's not just the plus sign. It's the symbol of hope. Imprinted throughout medical history as the place to go for help, nurturing, comfort and care. So, this is my contribution to the plus quilt, the red plus with a white heart and a healthy e.c.g. running through.
I am linking up to the Bloggers Quilt Festival.
This is my first year joining the festival, and really, it was all by chance.
I was browsing through the catergories today, and there are some amazing quilts entered. If you haven't already, take a few minutes (or an hour or two) to check out what some other seriously talented quilters have put together. You won't be disappointed.
