Heartstrings again


You have to tilt your head - Blogger has tilted the photo and I can not do anything about that - I have tried several times.......

I just finished this Heartstring top and DH has promised to help me sandwich it as soon as the TV news are done.

These string tops makes a dent in the scraps, always, but a smaller dent than what I expect when I start, as always.

All in all this top used approx 8 yards, including the backing. The blocks are 9" finished and the 2 borders finish 2,25" each.

My plans for next week are to finish this quilt and the Town and City quilt from earlier this week, as well as working on my advent calendar and maybe put in a couple of threads on the hand quilting of Leanne's House.
Should keep me busy through the week :-)

A lovely quilt as always

It looks great Hanne, I had blogger do that to one of my photos a couple weeks ago and nothing I did would fix it.

I really need to make a new *to do* list but I think I'm going to wait until I get back from Toronto since I only have Monday and Tuesday before we leave.

I love it when string blocks make a pattern like your hearts. String quilts are addictive!

Your string quilt really makes me want to try making one myself! I had only seen string blocks with many colours before. - Blogger did the same tilting with one of my photos in my last post, I had to leave that picture out.

Very pretty! I think the strings multiply when we are not looking!

Great quilt - love how you've tied it all together with the border too!! My strings just keep multiplying too ... need to make another top I guess :)
