Sorting the heart blocks
As the heart blocks arrived, I sorted them into bags depending on the colours (red, blue, green, purple, yellow/orange/brown and multi) and also into bages labelled 'boys' or 'girls' if they were made from children's fabric. Assuming that there would be some older boys as recipients, I sorted some that had no teddy bears or similar. Above is one of these, compiled and quilted by local quilter Joy Hurley, and including some nine-patch blocks I was given.
A number of the hearts were really pretty, with embroidery, lace, paper piecing and so on, and I collected some of these into another bag for Joy. Hasn't she made a great job?
