Patriotic Heartstrings: “Liberated Stars and Stripes”

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.

You can read more about her work at her blog – With Hearts and Hands, a Quilting Journey

HeartStrings Blog

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.
