Green string hearts



While I made the last block for the green quilt I was working on yesterday (you can just see the edge peeping out from under this stack of green hearts) I also did some string hearts with the rest of my green string stash - I made 12 of them, to go with the 10 blue ones I have. I did have 10 red as well, but donated them to Clare for Quilts for Leukaemia, so I decided I really needed to also make at least a handful of reds - don't have a lot of red strings, though, so perhaps I will do that throughout the year (I did make two, but that was about all my red strings were up to - which is good, really!).

Here's what's left of my stack of green strings now:



yep, just three strips. Not sure you can tell precisely how high it was when I started, but it was certainly a lot higher than three strips!

The hearts are so sweet -- congratulations on getting rid of all of those green strips. It would be lovely to run out of a color -- maybe soon:)
