The Heart is Color-Blind Fabric Mosaic

This framed mini quilt was made for the Village Artisan's "Mysteries of the Heart" exhibit. Each artist was encouraged to finish this sentence:

"The Heart is ____________________ ."

I decided to go with the sentence" "The Heart is Color-Blind" so hand cut 44 pink and 100 green fabric circles and arranged them like a color-blind test only instead of a number in a circle, it's a heart in a circle.

The circles were fused to a white background and the white background was quilted with white thread. I didn't quilt the circles because I didn't want to add any additional texture to that part of the quilt. The quilt is framed in a wood frame (outside dimensions are 10.5" x 10.5".

The exhibit at Village Artisans runs through February 24. There will be an artist reception on Fri., Feb. 10 from 6-9 pm.  Village Artisans is located at 100 Corry St. in Yellow Springs and is open Mon.-Thurs. 11 am- 6 pm, Fri.-Sat., 11 am-7 pm and Sun. noon-6 pm.
