Heartstring Quilts

I sent the Chinese coins quilt top to Mary, and she responded the minute it got to her home. That has encouraged me to make more. I posted a note on the quilting section at HGTV for some scraps for Charity quilts. As expected, there was zero responses, zero, zip, nada, nothing. So I posted a request on the Heartstrings Yahoo site and I got an immediate reply from Deb in AZ. She sent some strings immediately and I received them them yesterday. I am so amazed, not only did someone reply, not only did she send them right away but she sent really nice fabric. None of that Walmart stuff here, but bright. cheerful, good quality fabric. I think maybe I have finally found a charity site I can stick with.

I am glad things are working out for your charity work. It can be very frustrating trying to help, when no one else seems interested in what you are trying to accomplish. I'm sure the heartstrings group will work for you. They do a wonderful job.

I'm happy to hear you found the HeartStrings group. They are one of the biggest hearted group of people I have ever met. Full of encouragement and inspiration. Always a joy to read their messages. Hope you have a long and happy relationship with them :)
