Introducing Heart to Heart

The All New Hearts Collection

With a kid heading off to college last summer, I wanted to send her off with a reminder that she is loved. A reminder that goes well beyond words, and that will last a lifetime. A reminder that she can literally wrap around herself. 

What better time than this to re-create the Hearts collection that I love so dearly? When I realized it had been 10 years since the Silk Hearts quilt debuted, I knew we had to celebrate!

Heart to Heart is a new take on the original Hearts collection. It incorporates a decade of learning and wisdom. It takes my favorites from the original collection and adds some beautiful new design elements.

The girls and I were busy, cutting, stitching, and sharing memories as we’ve worked to bring this new collection to life with all kinds of projects, and I am so in love with how it turned out!

I decided to name this new collection Heart to Heart because I wanted to honor the original Hearts collection. And once I made that decision, I truly hoped it would resonate with people all over the world. 

What better time than now to share your heart?

If we’d all get heart to heart and love each other, there’d be a lot more peace and happiness in the world. 

And the greatest of these is love… 

I hope that when you’re stitching up the hearts in this beautiful collection, you keep this in mind and use each stitch as an opportunity to spread some love and allow yourself to be loved in return. 

I made this beautiful quilt for my sweet great niece, Ellie, who made her debut last year. Even though she lives far away, she has this piece of me to cuddle up in and know how much I love her. Before I sealed the box for shipping, I added in this sweet monkey, Pippo. 

My mum bought Pippo the Monkey books and a stuffed monkey for my nephew, Matthieu, (Ellie's Dad) many years ago. Matthieu, Pippo, and I went everywhere together! Now Ellie has her own Pippo, a fun story, and a beautiful handmade heirloom quilt she can share with her children one day. That's what quilts like these do - create memories to be treasured for decades to come.

"Sarah, I too want to thank you for your incredible talent and willingness to share with us. I am learning more than I had hoped for, both in cutting machine skills and embroidery mastery.... Even though I have been doing machine embroidery for more than 30 years. I am in awe of your tenacity for getting it perfect."
