Heartstrings Quilt Project




Well, it still needs the binding, but here is the (first, I hope) quilt for Heartstrings. It is about 44X60. It still needs a binding, but that shouldn't take long. This is the first quilt I did a panto on, and I'm not entirely thrilled with how the quilting turned out, but it was a learning experience...I had a lot of trouble getting the rows to line up correctly but I guess its just a matter of experience and practice.

This quilt didn't even put a dent in a small grocery sack of strips that I had. I could probably make a hundred of these quilts before I made a real dent in the scrap piles.

Looking good! I like the way some of these blocks look like they're receding into the quilt - guess it's the ones with the darker centers!

well done, Tracey! I love the way the reds make it zing. What better way to practice a quilting technique too. It looks good yet doesnt have to stay at your house and will warm someone in need.
