Of course if you’re going to make the entire set of blocks you can use any color centers. You can send in a set of 48 blocks or assemble the top and send that in for quilting. Here’s the brown HeartStrings top I finished this week.
Several months ago HeartStrings members made and sent a number of Quilt as you GO string blocks to Jan Mac for relief efforts in Australia. While it’s hard to know which blocks came from our members and which from other quilters — it’s neat to see all the quilts she’s making from the blocks. Here’s a peek at one and you can see others on the Oz Comfort Quilts blog.
I had the opportunity to speak to this Mankato, MN guild last night about HeartStrings and to show off some of our quilts. Thanks to Dee who invited me to speak and to Sheree who came along with me and helped.
I visited a local quilt show in Hudson, WI today. Kathy was there (one of our HeartStrings members and also a member of the guild putting on the show) and I snapped her photo at their charity quilting booth. She’s the one standing. Notice the HeartStrings quilts?
And hanging in the show, one of Kathy’s quilts that incorporated HeartStrings blocks with pieced blocks.
If you’re in the area, the show continues tomorrow so drop in.
