A HeartStrings sew-in

I’m more of a sunset than sunrise kind of girl but I was up early this morning heading south toward Rochester for a HeartStrings sew-in. I had to pull off the road and get my camera out of the trunk to take some sunrise photos. The amount of cloud cover made for a dramatic slice of light as the sun came up.


We worked hard at the sew-in and had a good time to0. You can see my table all set up to tie a HeartStrings top. That’s Sheree on the left who pieces a lot of backings for me and Sue who receives all the HeartStrings blocks here in the US and pieces many tops ¬†(her Mom helps too) for our volunteer quilters.

DSC_8862This top was pieced by Sue and her group in California (yes, a different Sue) and was the last of 9 tops  they sent in to be finished and donated. Several still need binding but all will be bound and donated soon.

    Wahhh – I always wish I was at a sew-in, or at a Retreat, but seldome actually GET to one. 8-(( That bright quilt is so cheery. Looks like you were in a church. Good job, gals. LOVE the sunrise – it’s not always easy to find a place to pull over and snap such a lovely photo.

    Your sunrise photo brings back so many memories. We would leave Cannon Falls early morning heading south to Rochester on our way back to MI. Sometimes when the sun was very low in the sky it was terribly hard to see!

    Beautiful quilts.
