I’m a big fan of string quilts that have a little of everything tossed in but I also love ones that have a bit of a plan too. Take a look at the following quilts and be inspired to create your own.
Here are a few other HeartStrings quilts with a coordinated look.
Thanks to the great response we had, Jennifer continues to work with the blocks received to assemble, quilt and donate additional quilts.
If you’d like to make and donate a HeartStrings quilt for a breast cancer patient, you can find lots of inspiration in our online Pink Strings album.
While most of our HeartStrings quilts are quilted by volunteers there’s another way to finish these quilts. Tying was a traditional way to finish string quilts and is still a wonderful way to finish HeartStrings quilts.
Bonnie Hunter posted photo’s of her Charity Bee tying a HeartStrings top that was pieced and donated by Laura (the photos are shown here with Bonnie’s permission).
In addition to all the HeartStrings quilts made from start to finish by individual members of our group, many of us work on assembling, quilting, binding, and donating quilts from the blocks sent in for group quilts.
I wanted to give you just a small sampling of the numerous quilts that have been made from blocks YOU have sent in and thank you all for participating in our Block Party this weekend that will result in even more quilts that will be donated to those in need.
We’re sewing up HeartStrings blocks this weekend to replace our depleted inventory. Please join in and make a few blocks with us.
Blocks should be made according the the guidelines but you can use RED, GREEN, or BLUE centers this weekend.
Email me for the address to send in blocks and to let me know that you’ve participated and how many blocks you made (1 or 100 – it’s all good!)
