Have you always wanted to join a HeartStrings sew-in but lived too far away? Join us this weekend for a virtual sew-in to launch our Diamond Strings project which will continue through October 31st.
You can make blocks to send in, you can piece an entire top, or make the quilt from start to finish yourself. Guidelines can be found here:
Our 3rd Annual sew-in held at Roberts, WI was a success with 14 quilters attending. We worked on past and current projects as well as making HeartStrings blocks.
The largest group worked on assembling Happy Blocks from a project earlier this year. Although we’re no longer accepting Happy Blocks for group quilts, you can find instructions to make your own here – Happy Block Instructions.

Kathy and Rhonda worked on Diamond Strings for our current project. Diamond String Instructions
I worked on a Chinese Coins quilt with coins leftover from our first project (yes, I’m still working on those coins!) Easy Chinese Coins instructions.
You can see all the photos in our Picasa Album.
Don’t forget that there’s an upcoming sew-in on Saturday, August 22nd in Robert’s, WI. If you can’t join us in person think about joining us at home and working on either Diamond String blocks for our newest project or our standard HeartStrings blocks.
I’m late getting these photos posted from the last HeartStrings Sew-in which was held on the 26th of June in the Seattle area. Doesn’t it look like fun? The next one will be held in Roberts, WI so plan to join us!
