Charlotte & Tammy's Hero Blocks

I just received my first international blocks for my Heroes QuiltCharlotte from London, England, sent two beautiful blocks filled with Denyse Schmidt's new fabric. I love the combo of colors she used!



Goosebumps!  Every time I read this!  That is all I have to say about this card!


Tammy, aka my lifesavor, aka the woman who generously donated her Longarm Quilting skills for this quilt sent this super fun block.  Thanks again, Tammy, for offering to quilt this.  I owe you big time!


It's starting to actually look like a quilt!  YEAH!!!


I'm linking up with Lee over at FreshlyPieced!

  10. I've been hankering to make another string quilt. It looks like the strips are varying sizes but evenly put on each side on these?

  11. I've only made a string pillow (two actually) but I really love this! Great colors!

    Also, what foundation did you use for the string fabric? I've used tissue paper and sewed with a smaller stitch length and tore it away, but I feel like I could use something else? Just wondering. Thanks! :)

  12. Beautiful! I love string piecing; I finally decided on a color palette and made a quilt top using this method. Yours is beautiful, so bright and cheery!
