A project for November

Every now and then one of our members pieces a HeartStrings quilt that inspires a project for all of us. While our standard red and blue centered. HeartStrings quilts look great, every now and then it’s fun to do something a little different.

Here’s Maryanne’s quilt that inspired this month’s Black/White and Brights Project.

If you’d like to send in blocks, these are pieced on a muslin foundation just like our typical HeartStrings blocks.

Cut your foundation 10 inches, use a bright center strip cut 2 inches … It doesn’t have to be the same fabric as in Maryanne’s quilt.

Use brights on half the blocks and black and white prints on the other half.

Square the block to 9.5 inches.

Twenty four blocks make a small child size quilt and you can chose to add borders or not if you make the entire top or quilt yourself.

Julie has already finished her top …. I’m just getting started with my blocks today.
