When a Man Loves a Woman

When a Man Loves a Woman by Aleathia Chisolm

The featured quilt of the week in the February 13, 2011 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter  is called When a Man Loves a Woman. It was created by Aleathia Chisolm.  
 
This quilt is my all time favorite Valentine’s Day quilt. Aleathia captures in this quilt what most ladies are looking for — a man who will cherish and adore them.

To create this quilt, Aleathia first pieced the black and white background from squares of different fabrics. She then appliquéd the man and woman on top. The loving couple is framed by three borders.

When a Man Loves a Woman is a small quilt that packs a powerful punch. It measures only 21 x 23 inches.  The focus of the quilt is a  man holding a woman appliqued on a pieced black and white background. The center block is surrounded by three borders which includes an eye-popping red one. The quilt was machine pieced and quilted by Aleathia.
