Who’s who?

Ginger wanted to identify the quilters in the Maine photos and since there isn’t an easy way to do that in the photo galleries I’d posted, I thought I’d try to do it here.

Mary – that’s me on the right … I’m one of the coordinators for the HeartStrings group.

Bev is our hostess … she organizes the sew-in each year in Yarmouth Maine and is on the right in the photo below …. and Brenda from NH is on the left.

Ann from PA brought SOOO many quilts to donate and hand sewed the bindings. We were so jealous of how fast she worked!

Jackie from NJ

“Little” Mary from Maine (not to be confused with me!) in the front and Brenda’s friend Barbara in the background.

It was Susan’s first sew-in

Jackie’s friend Karen from Virginia Beach was playing with crumb blocks.

Sharon (on the left) and Mavie (on the right) are also from Maine

Day 4

Today was the 4th day of the Maine sew-in and the last one for me until next year but Brenda will take and share photos with us tomorrow.

Today’s photos feature more HeartStrings quilts, the St Louis 16 patch, and there are a couple Sharon Quilts in progress too. Barbara got her top assembled and “little” Mary has blocks in progress. Susan even pieced a Quick Strippie. Click on any of the photos below to see a slide show.

If you’d like to make your own Sharon Quilt (a planned version of our HeartStrings quilt) this link will take you to an older post with the guidelines.

Day 3

More fun, more accomplished! I can’t believe I didn’t get a photo of the quilt stacks today but I was busy … tying quilts and chatting! I look forward all year to coming and sewing with Bev and the other quilts who come to Maine to work on HeartStrings and other donation quilts.

Bev is busy sewing and Mary is chatting while waiting her turn at the ironing board!

Day 2

So much being accomplished here in Maine!

Our stack of quilts is growing, some were finished before the sew-in and brought to donate and others are being pieced, tied, and bound here. You can see, we’re all hard at work! Plenty of HeartStrings blocks but we like making other patterns too.
