More easy quilting

This is a HeartStrings top that I pieced at the MN/WI sew-in that was held in May -- the blocks were made by other members and sent in for group quilts. It was a really popular project and we had tons of blocks to work with.

I quilted an easy wavy line grid over the quilt using the piecing lines for spacing.

And look at this cute backing -- it was pieced (you can't see the framing fabric) by Sheree from fabric donated for HeartStrings backings.

I'm so thankful for all the people who participate in HeartStrings -- there are so many ways people help out from making blocks, to assembling tops, quilting, making backings or donating fabric. Can't you picture how much a child in need will love this quilt?

Isn't it fun when you spot a block you donated in a finished quilt? The quilt is adorable. Another job well done Mary.

Great job, some of my 'favorite' give away quilts are the ones that just kinda come together. cw

I know a young man who would have loved that quilt as a boy. In fact he probably still would because of the cows on the back. He grew up on a dairy farm and really, truly loves cows. He's probably at his happiest in the milk barn.

Your quilt is lovely as always. Do you know what the name of that cow fabric is? I have some friends who own a dairy.. If I ever made them a quilt...
