The heart is 6 inches long and 3 inches wide. The top layer is a red hear, appliquéd onto and red/white heart I cut in a semi "rick-rack" pattern. I sandwiched it with batting and backed it with a different red fabric. Then placed all the wrong sides together and stitched. Then tuned them inside out to have the right sides facing out. Then embellished it and added ribbon to hand.
The inspiration came from a web site: https://www.
People all over are leaving quilted hearts to be found and kept my the person finding it. A little act of random kindness to to speak. The website is tracking the number of heart found, over 16,000 to date!
