Working with HeartStrings gives me the opportunity to work with tops assembled by many different quilters and while I’m not the quilt police, a nicely pressed top is SO much easier to work with.
I do practice what I preach — the back of the hourglass top is looking pretty neat — pressing as you go along helps the accuracy of your piecing too and although I make no claim to being a perfect piecer, my quilts are assembled pretty nicely.
I do suggest that HeartStrings tops have the seams pressed open which decreases bulk that comes from using a foundation.
Today I pulled out the Strips and Strings log cabin blocks I started at the Roberts sew-in and made some progress with them. My goal is to take at least two sets of of blocks for HeartStrings to GA with me this summer to assemble. I’m planning to be there several weeks and am lining up my projects.
