Strings of My Heart

The LC's have been "bisy" and so have I.  I wanted a group project for the CL's to work on and have been visiting Mary's blog.  She is actively involved with the Heartstrings project.  This quilt was designed by Jane of Forest Jane Designs and Heartstrings uses it for their logo.  I wanted to teach the ladies to string piece so it was all good!  Here is our first attempt at a string quilt.

If you notice, the center strings are not all the same width, we have since corrected this by having *me* cut all the center strings!
We are currently working on a 4 leaf clover design.  I think the all green blocks are turning out so well.  I plan on trimming some tonight, so will take a  picture to post tomorrow.

Even though they aren't all the same width, I think the heart design comes out clearly. It's lovely, I'll have to try one for the blanket brigage.

It looks wonderful. I think string blocks make a great group project.

Such a cute idea. The design really shows even though not uniform.
