Ohio Rose

Many years ago I purchased a vintage Ohio Rose quilt top. Mother was in need of a new bed spread so I decided, since she liked pink and green, this would do the trick. It wasn't quite big enough to be a bedspread so I added a green & pink print then a white border then hand quilted it. The quilt did the trick for many years, but the green stem/leaves faded and now no longer match the green/pink print border. And finally the inner pink hearts have suffered from age and the sun.
So, the quilt is now back at my place and I am removing those inner pink hearts and appliqueing a nice pink batik heart in their place. First batik heart done, only 59 more to go! I think they'll look good!
