Monday is for HeartStrings

We’re in the middle of a 6 month project at HeartStrings and have virtual sew alongs each Monday. Since I’ve finished the other two tops I’ve started since we began in February, I got to start a new set of blocks today.

Inspired by an antique quilt, my blocks are big but after making a smaller block to test my measurements, most of my leftover strips and strings were too wide so I enlarged the block rather than trying to trim down a lot of strips.

    I love those blocks. Looks like I have enough strings to make a string quilt a week for the rest of the year. Really, I’m not kidding.

    Love this one, Mary. it is on my to do list, but I thought I would have to pick one color for the centers. I like how you have mixed them. You are always so creative.

    Great block Mary! Almost like a spiderweb quilt Imade for my sister. She loved it and your niece will too,

    Almost like making a spider web quilt (I just started one). I like how the secondary pattern of diamonds appear. Neat idea. How antique was the quilt that inspired you?

    I really like this block too Mary! I agree with Becky, I like how you used different colors for the stars. It will make a beautiful quilt when it’s done.

    Is this a new design that you’ve worked out? It sure makes a great looking block. Are there instructions somewhere? I like that the ‘stars’ are different colors, too. A new way to deal with strings…
