Rainbow HeartStrings

I’ve made 3 quilts during our Rainbow strings project and since I just have a few working days before we head to Big Canoe, I’m going to make my last set of blocks. Jackie told me last year that she’d sash them … Hopefully she remembers telling me that because I’m going to bring the blocks and the sashing fabric with me to Maine and once she sashes and assembles the top, I’ll tie it and then, I’ll count on my binding buddy Rebecca to get the binding on and it can be donated in Maine. 

I worked up a quick drawing – the solid blocks will be string blocks but I didn’t take the time to draw each string. The 9 inch finished blocks will be set 5×7, the sashing will be cut 2.5 inches which will make a quilt that is 53 x 75. 


I’ve got all my foundations cut and am ready to start piecing blocks.

    Yes, Mary, I remember! I will be happy to sash your blocks. Maybe I’ll even get some of my own made by then.

    I have a few working days – you get so much done in your days. Today I spray basted 3 baby quilts and couldn’t even sit down at the sit down quilter to do the edges. You are amazing and I know you will work like crazy at Big Canoe, but make sure you enjoy your family time.

    I’ll be interested in seeing the finished quilt. I need to use up some of the strings (ALL of the strings) in my string box.

    Today I had my son put the Walk 4 Fun widget on my blog. Thank you!5

    Love your heart strings quilts, and thank you for this layout; it will get me started using all those strings I’ve accumulated over a thousand years. LOL Happy travels! Stay safe. m
