At the beginning of the project Jane created a logo for bloggers to use to link their blogs to the HeartStrings Quilt Project. The logo has been reproduced by project members into quilt tops and I’m anxiously waiting to see the first one quilted.
Melva was the first to post a photo of her Sweetheart top pieced by her and her husband, Guy.
Jane went on to design other string quilt variations to share with members and even got her guild involved in the HeartStrings project by making it their February Block of the Month Project.
They currently have 3 tops that are in the process of being quilted by guild members from the blocks made and donated by their group. The first one is being pinned for quilting in this photo and the other two can be seen by clicking the links below.

Michele contacted me by email to share her HeartStrings Project quilt. She’s participating via the HeartStrings Quilt Project website rather than the Yahoo group and I wanted to share the quilt she made to be donated to the Veteran’s Outreach Program in Salem, Oregon.
Welcome to the HeartStrings Quilt Project Blog. We’ll use this space to:
- keep you up to date on the progress we’re making including quilt donations
- feature HeartStrings quilters and groups
- and notify you of any upcoming events
For those of you not familiar with the project – please visit our website. You can read about how we got our start on our Group History/Background page and find out how you can participate.
The project is coordinated by Sue Frank, Megan Fisher, and myself and we’ll be glad to provide any information you need to join us in making HeartStrings Quilts for your local charitable organizations. In addition to being coordinators, Sue (in the US) and Megan (in Australia) receive the blocks made by group members and are both involved in piecing HeartString tops before sending them off to volunteer quilters.
Thanks to Jane for creating our HeartStrings logo.
