    Quilting for Charity Spotlight: Heartstrings Quilt Project

    Strings, strings and more strings!  All of us who quilt regularly have strings.  I keep mine in a small basket on one of my shelves.  When the basket is full, it’s time to start making blocks out of them.  But where do I send the blocks?  Or if I make a quilt top, who should I give it to?

    Heartstrings.  Simple as that.  I was pleasantly surprised to see how many different organizations and individuals they donate quilts to.  Read about their quilt outreach here.

    An absolutely beautiful “Heartstrings” quilt!

    Now I know just what I’ll do with the next string blocks and/or quilt top I make.  Go ahead, take a look at the Heartstrings website and enjoy their charitable journey!

          February Giveaway from LoveQuilting.com

          Over the past few months I have had the distinct pleasure to virtually get to know Nancy, the owner of the online quilt fabric shop, LoveQuilting.com.  She is an amazing woman, both in her day job and in her relentless quest to grow her fabric shop.  She has carved out a wonderful niche, specializing in beach and nautical themed quilt fabrics.  She has other fabrics, too, but her beach and nautical fabrics makes me want to toss out my slippers and sink my bare feet into a warm sandy beach with the sun in my face and the water so blue it’s almost iridescent.  It’s warmth on a dreary winter day.  It’s beach combing.  It’s the essence of my love for quilting – from LoveQuilting.com!

          LoveQuilting.com is sponsoring the February giveaway here at Quilt Therapy and we couldn’t be more excited about it!  Here’s what the winner will receive:
