Yippee! I finally finished some Heartstrings blocks! The bad news - you can't tell that anything has been used from the bag of strips I started out with this afternoon. Do they multiply while you are sewing or when you are trimmming the blocks? I used mostly strips I had cut for my Mumbo Gumbo challenge with yellows for the other side and purple down the middle. Not sure how I will set the blocks or how many I will make. There's lots of strips still to use.
Yesterday I worked getting our local quilt show ready for the 4:00 opening. If you are near mid Michigan, stop over to Valley Plaza in Midland and check out the quilts. There are about a dozen or so vendors as well as a silent auction, raffle quilt and small quilt auction tomorrow afternoon. The link has all of the information you may need.
