We are trying to meet at my house twice a month to work on HeartStrings. Currently, we need to finish about 12 more Quilts of Valor by the end of January. I received a bag of blocks at guild this week so I worked ahead a little. I put this top together today and made 9 more blocks. The stars as center strips are going to create a very interesting look. The touches of gold create a little different feel, as well. My goal for our group is to put together at least 3 sets of finished blocks tomorrow. Then I will quilt them over the next few days and find others to finish off the binding.
After being away for 31 years, we are finally home again. We are South Dakotans through and through, so this is were we want to spend our "retirement" years. My husband and I are getting ready to open a custom woodworking business with me being the paper pusher and the woodworker's apprentice. Along with that I am going to continue quilting and also work as a substitute teacher. Life is good!
