Marianne’s HeartStrings top for QOV

Did you miss me yesterday? I spent a couple hours wrestling with my desk – clearing papers and paying bills then Keith and I took a walk. First, to the Basilica to light a candle and pray for a family member who is ill then to a favorite sports bar to watch part of the Redskin game.

I did manage to finish the binding and label this HeartStrings quilt pieced by Marianne that will go to Alycia’s QOV project – she’s well on her way to her goal of 400 Quilts of Valor in 2009. If you’d like to help her out – she’s accepting tops, finished quilts, and pillowcases (made in patriotic colors preferably) to present the quilts in.
