‘Your bravery and service of country
led you to oer all to show you care.
We wanted to let you know we love you
and you were not alone out there.

Your heart has touched so many others
and kept their hopes and dreams alive.
Without courageous people like you
our great nation could not survive’.

With unending gratitude,
we dedicate this quilt to you.

Legacy™ by Pellon® presents ‘Your Heart Touches Ours’ (Quilted Tote), designed by Alexandra Henry for Quilted in Honor, an initiative created to support Operaton Homefront. The block was designed so that when blocks are sewn together, they create a second heart in between each heart. Sections on the block’s outer rows are removed so that the main heart touches the edge on each side. Detailed instructions for piecing the blocks are included in this project that will help more inexperienced quilters have success. If you prefer foundation piecing, the ‘Your Heart Touches Ours’ quilt has foundation pieced blocks. Alexandra’s website is
