A new Project

Every now and then we like to play around with different combinations and colors and our project for July and August uses light colored centers. If you’re sending in blocks for group quilts, use the block guidelines (Link on the right sidebar) and substitute a white center strip like Joyce did.  


If you’re making the full set, 24 blocks for a child or 48 for an older child or adult, you can choose any light colored center you’d like. You can send in the full set of blocks, send in a completed top, or complete the quilt yourself and donate it locally. 

Nann chose solids for her top.  


Stephanie chose powder blue centers for hers.  

I chose to make my gray center strip a little narrower ( I cut it 1.5 inches rather than two inches) and paired the gray with brights.  

What combination will you choose? 

What are you working on?

Here’s Nann’s May HeartStrings top (she’s making one each month this year)

And Jay assembled this top from group blocks sent in. Love the borders he chose. 

And here’s one by Stephanie.

Have you made a HeartStrings quilt recently?

Nann’s latest top

Nann has a goal of making a HeartStrings top every month in 2015. I love the one she finished this month. Check her blog to see the others. 

Red Centers

Julie and Stephanie teamed up to finish this red centered Heartstrings quilt. Blocks made according to our guidelines can be sent in for group quilts. 

Finishing up projects

Every now and then, we challenge ourselves with a particular color scheme or layout. Here are a couple recent finishes.

Joyce finished this one from our Black/White & Brights challenge

Here’s Pat’s quilt from our Sharon Quilt Challenge (using a more controlled color scheme than our typical quilt)






Using Stripes

We recently had a question about using stripes in HeartStrings quilts. I used two in my planned HeartStrings quilt made for our Sharon challenge (Sharon is a member who makes wonderful planned HeartStrings quilts and we decided to challenge ourselves to make one too).


 Stephanie used a striped fabric for the center of this scrappy HeartStrings quilt.


And here’s another one of Stephanie’s that uses stripes on either side of her center strip.


So go ahead and pull out those stripes you’ve been wondering how to use and make a HeartStrings quilt.

Sarah’s latest HeartStrings quilts

Sarah combined our November and December challenges and made these ‘planned’ HeartStrings quilts.



A project for November

Every now and then one of our members pieces a HeartStrings quilt that inspires a project for all of us. While our standard red and blue centered. HeartStrings quilts look great, every now and then it’s fun to do something a little different.

Here’s Maryanne’s quilt that inspired this month’s Black/White and Brights Project.


If you’d like to send in blocks, these are pieced on a muslin foundation just like our typical HeartStrings blocks.

Cut your foundation 10 inches, use a bright center strip cut 2 inches … It doesn’t have to be the same fabric as in Maryanne’s quilt.

Use brights on half the blocks and black and white prints on the other half.

Square the block to 9.5 inches.

Twenty four blocks make a small child size quilt and you can chose to add borders or not if you make the entire top or quilt yourself.

Julie has already finished her top …. I’m just getting started with my blocks today.


Cuddle Fabric

Once again Shannon Fabrics donated a bolt of their cuddle fabric to us to back quilts during the Maine sew-in. Here Rebecca is binding one after it was tied.



We all tested the cuddle factor after it was finished and I know whoever receives this quilt will love it!

We’re sewing in Maine!

The first quilt has been tied and bound and blocks are being pieced and tops assembled here in Yarmouth Maine.
