Border added

This is one of the 24 block HeartStrings group tops sent to me by Sue. I’m adding borders to some of them to make them a little larger. Nothing fancy, just searching the stash for a complimentary fabric and cutting a 6.5 inch border. That brings these quilts up to 48 x 66 inches which is a nice lap size. I think this border really complements the string blocks.

In addition to finishing the 16 patch top and adding these borders, I also pieced a backing for another top and pulled a couple more fabrics from stash to add borders to two more of the group quilts. I even got my walk in. It was a good day and now I’m going to relax and crochet a bit while I listen to my audiobook.


  1. Can a pieced backing have partly LOF and partly WOF sections? Or is it better to have all of one, or all of the other? Any downside to mixing?

  2. For some reason, this particular String quilt really appeals to me. I love all of them but this one is extra special.
