Quilt Projects



Most of my sewing this past month has been hand sewing quilt bindings. I have them stacked up like planes at the Atlanta airport. I finished two projects and am working on the third binding. I have four other quilted tops waiting. This is rather comforting to me. My husband LOVES football especially college football. I like to sew bindings when I watch TV with him. I try to watch one game a weekend so these will get done during this football season. Sunday, I spent an hour or so in my sewing room. Everything in there is like I left it in late July, even my calendar. I have two projects from the Sew-In on my cutting table. I have a charm pack with fusible interfacing ready for a tote bag, etc. etc. etc. Even though I have all these projects breathing down my neck, I think I'm going to sew some blocks for the Heartstrings Quilt Project. I have followed Mary's blog for several years. I've started some string blocks, but never finished them. I really like this charity. Donations are accepted in several ways - cut strings, blocks and/or pieced tops. I love sewing string blocks. I'm setting a goal to try and do several blocks each day for the next couple of days. Care to join me in sewing blocks to send to the Heartstrings Quilt Project?

Count me in. I will get some blocks made this week or weekend.
Glad to see that you are back in your sewing room.

I'm with you. Spent yesterday and today iron/cutting up strings. But I did get 10 blocks made inbetween.

Thanks Becky! I activated your site on the HeartStrings Blog Ring too - thanks for joining us.

I've been saving strings for a while, mostly because I'd seen so many of Mary's string quilts. I have a whole bin full now, so maybe it's time to start one of these!
