Stringy hearts


Well, I finally finished up the orange and brown hearts (not so many orange ones - only about 3 or 4) and have been making them into tops. Made these two tops over the weekend - essentially the same, but just mixed up the colours of the rows a bit. I have one more design planned, which will use 25 blocks, and then I have 19 more in various colours which will want using in some way. Not quite sure yet what I will do with those - will have to have a play with them. At least one of these stripy ones will go on the baby quilt stash - the other may also or may go to charity - I think that will depend on how the third one looks. Whatever I do with the leftover 19 blocks, that will almost certainly go to Project Linus. And of course, a load of red ones that I made already went to Clare for Quilts for Leukaemia, so my de-scrapifying is really doing some good somewhere...

Gorgeous projects. I have just finished a baby cheater quilt as we have found out at the end of September that our only child, a daughter who turned 40 years old this year and has had fairly serious health issue is now expecting after 16 years of marriage. We are so happy and just hope she will be able to have a healthy baby. So baby quilts and baby items are on my list nowadays.

What beautiful hearts! They go together so nicely laid out like that and will surely be much loved.
