April 19

Heres the string heart quilt for American Hero's. Took me a total of 2 days worth of sewing to get this far. I took this project with me to go see Lynn at her place and taught her how to make a couple of the blocks. Now she is hooked and looking for scraps of brights to make her own.

Anyways, this is what the center looks like. I have since added a light print strip around the outside of the whole thing and I am going to add either the red or the blue that I have up beside it.

Susan said how about a border like an attic window, 1 top and 1 side blue, 1 bottom 1 side red. I just might do that, It sounds really neat! So I hope to post the finished top tomorrow or day after.

Heres the center of Molly's pink and brown log cabin. Its the only photo I have right now since I am still finishing up the quilt. Just another row to do and then its off the frame and trim threads! Yippee! I am having so much fun being creative! And Molly Loves it! She got a sneak peak when I showed her this picture.
Hope everyone is doing well!
Prayers to all those who are grieving and suffering at Virginia Tech.

Both quilts are beautiful. The AmHero quilt reminds me of a kaleidoscope. Molly's is such a pretty combo, did you hand quilt it?
