Heartstrings Logo and Link

I made a small logo of a heart made with heartstrings blocks, did some talking with Mary J., and after getting her blessing, I stuck it over in my sidebar, linked to the Heartstrings Quilt Project website. Here's a big 400 pixel wide version of it:


If anyone else making these blocks wants the code for the little 125 pixel logo and link, just e-mail me and I'll send it to you, all ready to paste in your sidebar. :)

I'm not a member of the Heartstrings yahoo group, but I have already made... *counting on my fingers* ...nine complete ones, I think, and will be making many more blocks. I'll be sending some of them off and using others here with my guild on our local charity quilt project.

In fact, I'm going to make it our block of the month for two months running, (red stripe vs. blue stripe) so hopefully our guild will get several quilts done. I'm a fabric shred hoarder, and I'm ashamed to admit that there's not a noticeable dent in my strips and strings stash yet, so this is a GOOD project for me to be working on!

Great job on the button Jane, it looks lovely. I'd love the code. I agree the blocks are great for busting the stash, I'm having a great time making them!

Terrific! I can see that becoming the 'official' logo - great job!

Susan said...

Hi, Jane, love the quilt picture - have you actually put blocks together like that one? I'd love to!

I hope it's okay, I did my own html and put the little one in my sidebar.

Clare said...

I agree with Tazzie - I'm loving doing them (now that I have got my eye in LOL).

You rock Jane!!! what a great idea to promote a great cause...

Great design promoting a great project. I really must find time to make some of these blocks as I have a large tub of strings ;)

Cynthia said...

the logo looks great. I have made 26 blocks and sent them off to the lady in charge of collecting them here in Australia.

I'm a member of the yahoo group and would love to borrow your picture for my sidebar! Great job on the button, and I'd love to make the quilt design too.

Carolyn said...

Jane, I'd love to have the code so I can include it on my sidebar! Thanks!

Darcie said...

What a terrific design for the strings, ForestJane! Well done!

Very nice logo too. I'm sure it will be on many blogs soon!

Pam said...

That is a great picture. I have never seen the quilt all together - just pictures of blocks - so I didn't know what the final quilt looked like. It is a great quilt. I will have to make some blocks. Sounds like they are a bit addictive from what I've read - LOL.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that layout!

Tracey said...

It looks beautiful, I'd love to have you email the code so I put it on my sidebar, too. I might need lots of hand holding and help to get it to appear there, though. :-)

Laurie Ann said...

Fantastic logo! I'll e-mail you to get that logo. I am itching to get started on some of those blocks!!

I'd love to put your heartstrings logo on my blog. I've been resisting adding another project to my already full agenda -- but I just can't resist this one any longer. I'm going to be making string blocks in between my other projects and hopefully cleaning up my scrap bins a bit.

I'd like permission to put it where my profile photo would go. Thanks for letting me know if I can. I belong to Heartstrings block project and saw your blog and design on the website too. Great design!!!!!O2bquiltn2@yahoo.com.

Sonja Nelson said...

This quilt is so beautiful! I would love to add the logo to my sidebar as well, along with the new web addy for "our" group efforts. Thanks for sharing!

Mary said...

Jane I'm starting a blog for the HeartStrings Project and would like to put this logo in the Profile Space - could you email me the code for the 125 pixel logo?

Over the next few weeks I'm going to hightlight different parts of the project and I'd like to add an entry about both the HeartStrings designs you've created as well as the work you've done with your guild. I'm going to link to different pages on your blog but I'd like to lift a couple pictures off and post them with the entry I write(one of your guild members and one design) if that's OK with you. I will also create permanent links to your blog with the different designs that you've shared.

Thanks, Mary
