The Maine sew in is done and we’re already thinking ahead to next year! We decided on two projects and you have options!
You can always make our red or blue centered blocks and send them to Sue or Stephanie but we’ll plan on working on the rainbow blocks and RWB blocks this year and you can sew along with us making and donating quilts locally or you can send blocks to Maine, to Sue, or to Stephanie!!
First up, Rainbow blocks … made like our regular HeartStrings blocks on a 10 inch muslin foundation and trimmed to 9.5 inches only we’ll use a single color in each block. I have some brief instructions on my website at this link.
We’ll also work on quilts for veterans … using a blue center strip and then a variety of red, white (or beige or tan), and blue strings. Again, using the same guidelines as we do for our HeartStrings blocks.
So how many blocks can we make in a year?! Make a stack and then let me know when you need a mailing address. If they’re coming to Maine, Brenda has agreed to collect and bring them in September but Sue and Stephanie are looking forward to receiving blocks too.
Karen got an early start at this year’s sew-in!

Oh, how fun! I make QOVs as it is so I think I’m going to give those RWV string blocks a whirl. I can set them into a quilt & donate them to a vet, can’t I? Oh, I’m excited!
Oops… in my excitement, I forget to spell-check… “RWB”, not “RWV”. Sorry!
