A Mother’s Heart

A Mother's Heart, by Maxine Moore

The featured quilt  of the week in the February 7, 2010 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter  is the perfect quilt for Valentines Week. It is called A Mother’s Heart, and it was created by Maxine Moore.

Maxine Moore

Maxine created this 74 x 64 inch quilt in 2008 for Mrs. Yvonne Rubens’s 80th birthday at the request of Mrs. Rubens’ daughter  and fellow quilter Rosalind Newell.  The large heart pattern was created by Maxine from strategically placed variations on nine-patch blocks. The crimson and cream colors were chosen because Mrs. Rubens has been a member of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority since her college years. Rosalind also wanted the heart to remind her mother that she is loved and appreciated.
 
A Mother’s Heart was part of the 2009 Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Show. It is part of  Mrs. Rubens’ permanent collection of heirloom quilts.
