Rainbow HeartStrings

It’s been a while since I made some of these blocks so I don’t know if you remember the Rainbow HeartStrings blocks are our project for Maine this year … I’m crossing my fingers that we’re still able to have the September sew-in. Anyway, I started my blocks in January and have made green, purple, orange, and now there are 16 yellow blocks made. My intention is to make a bunch of blocks and then piece one or two quilts myself and take/send the rest for group quilts. If you haven’t seen these quilts, I’ve got some examples on my website.

I also finished the binding on quilt #9 of 10 so I just have one to quilt and one to bind … different quilts because the last top I’m going to quilt is another one of Mom’s. I admit I’m running out of steam as I get closer to the finish line of this quilting/binding marathon but I feel good about what I’ve been able to accomplish by staying focused.


  1. Running out of steam is allowed after such hard work. You have other stuff in your life to do. The new house needs attention. Bike riding when weather permits. Family. Time to slow down just a little.

  2. Mary, I’m amazed at what you have accomplished. Well done. I am a snail in my quilting completions.

  3. I KNEW you could get 10 done while back in Florida 🙂 Congrats on your commitment to your goal!
