Heartstrings - A New Project and an Old Project

Over at the Heartstrings Quilt Project some members are working on making string quilts using black/whites and brights as our November project. 

I looked through my scrap bins and didn't have enough long strings for regular Heartstring blocks but I did find enough b/w short strings and some bright blues for some wonky log cabin blocks. So I will be quilting along with other Heartstringers in November.  So far I've made 6 - 9 inch blocks out of the 24 I need for a child sized quilt. 

I more or less followed the instructions at Mary's Quilts. 

And speaking of Heartstring quilts...

...I was surprised to see the Heartstring quilt I finished after a New Year's 2013 purple-centered quilt along and donated to Wrap-a-Smile...

Rotaplast performs surgeries on kids with cleft palate and cleft lip. Wrap-a-Smile provides each patient with a quilt.

How exciting to see where your quilt ended up!! But I LOVE your idea for the log cabins instead of the strings.... Perfect!
