King Sized Art Quilt

It took me about 2 years off and one to piece and hand quilt this king sized art quilt for our bed. I designed it to represent our family at the time. The large aqua heart represents my husband, the large purple heart for me and each of the 4 kids had their favorite smaller pieced heart (on the bottom right) that also included remnants from their graduation quilts. The small yellow heart (bottom left) represented a baby that died and has preceded us to heaven but later after we adopted came to represent the 5th child. In the borders are hand quilted scripture verses about marriage. The last photo is of the back and pieced heart label. After all the designing, piecing and quilting I realized that it would probably look much better on a huge wall, which we don't have but it's been great to sleep under.
