Marianne's HeartStrings top for QOV

Did you miss me yesterday? I spent a couple hours wrestling with my desk - clearing papers and paying bills then Keith and I took a walk. First, to the Basilica to light a candle and pray for a family member who is ill then to a favorite sports bar to watch part of the Redskin game.

I did manage to finish the binding and label this HeartStrings quilt pieced by Marianne that will go to Alycia's QOV project - she's well on her way to her goal of 400 Quilts of Valor in 2009. If you'd like to help her out - she's accepting tops, finished quilts, and pillowcases (made in patriotic colors preferably) to present the quilts in.

Hi Mary,
Your quilts are an inspiration to me! I have been wanting to make a Quilt of Valor for a long time, and your post is a good reminder. Keep up the great work, and thanks.
