Rexa's Heirloom Quilt

Here is another crazy quilt !   Mom had these heart shape blocks given to her by a friend . They were already shaped like a heart, Mom was not sure what she wanted to do with them,well since Mom & I have the first one we made. Rexa, my younger sister by 3 yrs decided she would like to have one, so Mom and I started decorating them with more trims, beads, lace, embroidery and extra buttons & etc. Quite abit of the lace & trims Rexa sent up to her. 
Mom did not know how she wanted to finish the quilt, so she waited for us to go back to Live Oak, we decided it was best for her to line the hearts and turn them,because of the raw edges it seemed easier,  so she did that with tulle, then we laid them out like this, Mom hand sewed them down and Rexa told her to leave the rest for her to do, later on she will add more embellishments to the velvet part.
The velvet is burgany with a boarder like the first one made of embossed satin.
