RWB HeartStrings blocks

Since I needed to do a little rearranging in my sewing room for Chris to sew some RWB HeartStrings blocks with me this weekend, I decided to make a few blocks while I was at it.

This room is still a mess but I think we can work in here. If you'd like to make some blocks with us this Memorial Day weekend you can view the guidelines at the HeartStrings blog.


While I was working upstairs - look who found the quilt I'd folded and set on the chair. Chesty needs his summer haircut but I wasn't able to get him an appointment until Tuesday so he's really curly right now!

Chesty looks so much like my grand-dog Max that I just want to give him a hug. These little white cotton ball dogs are such sweeties.

Mary, I love that your son is planning to do some string blocks with you this weekend! I remember his post card a while back ;) Have a great time!

Hope Chesty loves his soon to be summer cut - our schnauzer got one the last time and wow what a difference - he was so entergetic like a pup!

Thanks for your email reply today - I knew you'd understand ;) and I hope to blog about it later on tonight after my kids are in bed. :)

Love from Texas! ~bonnie

Do you use a muslin foundation for your heartstrings blocks? Any problems with quilting it?

I'm glad that Chesty is finally comfy in his new home!

It seems that all animals know that a quilt is the best place to relax!

Thanks for sharing the picture of your string blocks - now I'm 100% clear on the fabrics to use for the patriotic blocks.
Chesty looks so cute on the quilt - looks like he is much more settled now.
Enjoy the weekend with your son :)

I'm sure sewing rooms are supposed to be messy LOL. And I know for a fact that folded quilts are almost the most inviting!

Chesty is hilarious! What a hoot and a great photo.

Your blocks are fantastic. Love them. One of these days I'll have to make some myself!

It is good to see that Chesty is doing well again.

I need to sew some string blocks before Wednesday evening.
I miss doing the blocks really, and now I need some, to show at my guild. They are planning some charity sewing in the autumn.

Is Chesty back to his old self healthwise? Spencer is really coming along. What a relief!
