This week I’m back downstairs in the longarm room. This was a donated HeartStrings top but offhand I’m not sure who sent it to me — quilted with some simple freehand swirls. I try to be good about tracking where these come from but sometimes a top doesn’t get labeled.
EDIT: Becky R in IL wrote to let me know this was her HeartStrings top. I’m so sorry I wasn’t able to identify it when I first posted it.
A simple swirl creates nice texture and is quick and eases me back into quilting!
I seem to be on a night schedule again so I’m going to head upstairs now and work on the string Courthouse Steps blocks I started last night. After working on HeartStrings blocks over the New Year’s holiday weekend, I realized I need to make some inroads into my string bins before they overtake me. I’m going to participate in our 365 challenge which means that I’m going to attempt 365 string blocks of some sort in 2013 although I won’t stress if it takes me longer than a year. I’m starting out with 48 blocks from this HeartStrings top.
