Alycia’s Quilts of Valor Project

Alycia, a HeartStrings member, is a supporter and volunteer for Quilts of Valor making quilts for wounded soldiers. Her current goal is to collect 4oo quilts for 2009 to present to the wounded soldiers at Ft. Carson in CO and HeartStrings members are helping her out with blocks, tops, finished quilts, and pillowcases to present them.

This is one of two recent tops pictured on Alycia’s blog sent by a Deborah another HeartStrings member. Visit Alycia’s blog to read more about her efforts and to see the tops, quilts, and pillowcases being collected.

A string heart for HeartStrings

Michele sent photos today of two of her recent HeartStrings quilts.

She writesMost of the quilts I make make are just regular patterns (through my quilting group), my string quilting is usually patriotic to send on up to Madigan Army Hospital.  I just love string quilting and almost always have one in the pile for the days when it’s too hot to think or I’m too tired for any precise cutting and measuring!” 

Don’t you love seeing all the variations HeartStrings members come up with?
