Sort your strings by color and create a Rainbow HeartStrings quilt. This one has 4 blocks of each color sewn together


I cut my sashing 2.5 inches for this one and added colorful cornerstones cut 2.5 inches square.

    I cannot wait to get my studio cleaned up (LOL) so I can make one of these. The big stumbling block? What color do I want to make? I’m leaning towards using some Civil War repros. I’m excited!!! I love these!!!

    I especially love the QOV string block quilt. Is there a pattern or instructions for this one. I belong to the Mt Carmel QOV group in Colorado Springs and would love to make this one for our group.
