Siblings Together quilt

A charm packet kindly provided by Katy (actually two but I haven't made the other quilt yet).

Pondering what to make that would reflect a quilt for a sibling that has been separated (read more here)

Talked about it with my two daughters and we decided on this.

 
Both daughters positioned the hearts to make a heart shape.
We decided that if you were separated from your sibling your heart would not be complete so we took the decision to make one of the hearts smaller.

But all is not lost because the missing heart is still close by (I quilted one in the bottom right which you can just see)



Quilting looks quite pretty from the back. (All levels of age group had a go so it is not perfect)
