HeartStrings is doing a project in honor of one of our members that passed away this year. Marianne always participated in our 365 block challenge and was lamenting that she was not going to be able to meet the goal this year due to her health issues. When she died, we decided as a group to make her blocks for her and the quilts will be finished and donated all over. I decided I’d do one of our Sharon inspired HeartStrings quilts for my 48 blocks and made a start tonight. I’m going to love this combination! The photo is a little dark because I snapped it after midnight. Keith took some PTO this afternoon and we went for a bike ride and a swim after watching the Lightning win again so I didn’t get into the sewing room until late tonight after Keith went to bed.
While most of our HeartStrings quilts are made from leftover strips and strings, this is a more planned layout and starts with yardage. I have some brief instructions on my website. Sharon is one of our members in Maine and after admiring her quilts, we started copying her! This was the first one I’d made and while I love the scrappy HeartStrings quilts … these are great too.
