We’re halfway through our String Diamond project so if you plan on joining in, now’s the time as it ends on October 31st. You can make blocks to send in, make a top, or the entire quilt. Instructions can be found at this link – String Diamonds.
Here’s one that was pieced by Rebecca and tied at the Maine sew-in. Photo will enlarge if you click on it.
I have no idea how many quilts and tops at the Maine sew-in were made by Rebecca but in addition to the finished quilts and tops she brought with her, she bound, pieced, and even quilted while she was there. I was happy that I was able to tie several of the tops she brought which were then bound by Ann and Brenda.
Here are just a few I managed to photograph. Thumbnails will enlarge if you click on them.
They were still going strong when I left yesterday but the multi day sew-in was a huge success. With 8 or 9 participants and supplies and blocks and tops provided by the entire HeartStrings group – many quilts were completed for homeless shelters, a crisis center, and a start made on quilts for Maine veterans.

It’s always fun to see the different variations we get when we start a new project. If you’d like to participate in our Diamond Strings project that continues through October 31, check out the guidelines here.
A group of us sewed this past weekend to kick off the project and I’d thought I’d share some of our results here.
The HeartStrings sew-in continues through Labor Day, are you participating? I finished my Diamond Strings top today as a part of our special project through October 31. The guidelines can be found here: Diamond Strings
