This will be an entry in the Quilting Arts 'What's in Your Heart' reader challenge and ATC swap as published in Issue 58, August/September Quilting Arts. It is 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches red wool felt background. The left side of the heart is black and blue hand dyed wool with silk ribbon embroidery and glass beads. The right side is two pieces of wool, the top pink hand-dyed and the bottom (not visible in this photo) is a light blue hand-dyed wool. The two sides of the heart are connected with an over-dyed zipper. The zipper was a hot pink before I dyed it with a brown ink. The zipper stop is a key charm. The heart is edged with various glass beads and the red background is edged with purple glass see beads. The interior of the heart holds a butterfly charm surrounded by pink rhinestones. I have tied two 'scapular' to the zipper pull. One is an image of Mary holding baby Jesus; the other is a poem I wrote years ago and included in a quilted wall hanging "Mended hearts are broken hearts".
