Have a Heart, Make a Quilt Campaign

This is an American Heart Association and AccuQuilt campaign for women’s heart health. You can find more information at AccuQuilt as well as get badges for your blog. I must admit that I had trouble using their code for my blog, so did a workaround to show you the button below.

Click on the link above and you will find complete information about this project as well as templates for the heart shapes to be used on the quilt blocks. Each block must include at least one heart from the GO! Heart-2″, 3″, 4″ (55029) or GO! Queen of Hearts (55325) dies or from the free downloadable heart templates.

Here are a couple of the shapes that I have been working with to make some machine embroidery for the project. I hope to have files ready soon for those who do machine embroidery. They’re not quite finished, but I couldn’t wait to show you.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.

  1. Marjorie asked me to share this recipe for like Best Press, I pay 7.99 for a 12 oz bottle. This works just as good and not as crisp as starch but leaves it a light cripness and takes out the creases and wrinkles. I Get a fine mist spay bottle at Wal Mart in the hair dept. Spray fabric, roll up and put in plastic for a little while and then iron dry with a hot iron. I hang my strips on a pant hanger that has the clips.
    Mix 3 1/2 oz of vodka, 24 oz or 3 cups distilled water you can add 1 tsp of essencial oil if desired. I don’t add it as you have to keep shaking it so it doesn’t seperate and this has a nice clean smell anyway.
