#3 of 10 quilted

This top was constructed by two male students in a clothing class — it’s not the most precisely constructed quilt and had some challenges but I just love that they chose to make a HeartStrings quilt for their project. It will bring color and warmth into someone’s life when it’s finished and donated.

I quilted freeform Baptist Fans (NO pantograph, template, or marking — all freehand); these are really fun and with their random and uneven arcs really suit a string quilt like this.

  1. My Favorite thing on your blog– showing how you quilted a quilt. Great story on this one, too. It’s wonderful that those young men did a quilt for Heartstrings.Now– freeform ? Baptist Fans? Is it a panto?
