Hearts Desire by Marjorie Rich

Marjorie Rich of Boise Idaho, USA 
Marjorie has created a stunning quilt using applique elements from my pattern Hearts Desire. She has called this beauty Heart's Infatuation, here's what she had to say about it: Heart's Desire was a mystery BOM. I loved many parts of it, but got tired of doing some of the multiple repeats. I call my remix Heart's Infatuation. Needle turn applique and hand quilting. Finished March 2013. 

Marjorie, I love seeing my applique motifs worked into such a beautiful centre! I love what you've done here and your use of colour is just superb. This quilt is glowing and the surrounding green blocks creates such a vibrant lively feel. I love every inch of this beauty. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us all. 

Be sure to visit and follow Marjorie's blog: and be inspired by her creative work. I love following and catching up with applique bloggers and am delighted that Marjorie's added her interpretive piece to the Open Gallery to inspire so many people.

  1. Superb. But then it had your work for inspiration.

  2. Every bit of it was in Esther's original elements, except for the brick border (to use all the extra green I bought) and the sashiko inspired diamonds that I hand quilted in fucshia.
