RWB HeartStrings blocks

Since I needed to do a little rearranging in my sewing room for Chris to sew some RWB HeartStrings blocks with me this weekend, I decided to make a few blocks while I was at it.

This room is still a mess but I think we can work in here. If you’d like to make some blocks with us this Memorial Day weekend you can view the guidelines at the HeartStrings blog.

While I was working upstairs – look who found the quilt I’d folded and set on the chair. Chesty needs his summer haircut but I wasn’t able to get him an appointment until Tuesday so he’s really curly right now!

  1. Chesty looks so much like my grand-dog Max that I just want to give him a hug. These little white cotton ball dogs are such sweeties.Linda
