Heartstrings Pinwheels

Here's another just finished heartstrings wheelchair sized top:


I'm about heartstring-ed out, but I still have a few more of the heartstring blocks my guild members made left, to put into a quilt. I did finally finish trimming the ones I have. I found out after I'd started sewing them into strips to make a top that some of them measured 10 inches square, and some measured 9½ inches, and some weren't square at all. And there I was thinking, boy, these things sure must be stretching, because my strip side seams weren't matching up at all. :D

So, quite a bit of ripping seams later, all of them are now 9½ inches square. Off I go to visit all of you!

Wow, you've been so busy I'm not surprised you're ready for a break! I had been working on a few non string quilt projects so I was glad to get back to my strings last week. Now I have to decide if I'm going to start another string quilt or start the quilt I'm planning to make for my daughter-in-law.

All your string quilt layouts are just too fun!

Love how this pinwheel version turned out. Congrats on conquering the 'difficulties' presented by working with blocks made by different makers :)
