Heart Builders

Have you heard of Heart Builders? They make comfort quilts for kids, sponsored by Stash Builder Box/Cotton Cuts, who provide some of the fabrics for a top. Heart Builders participants piece tops and send them to team leaders for quilting, finishing and distribution.

I made a couple of tops for Heart Builders a couple years ago. Then I didn't hear anything for awhile. I'm not on Facebook so I missed out. Now I've reconnected, and they sent me some fabrics to make a top for them.

They want tops that measure about 45 by 60". There's a yard and a half of the Western print and a yard total of each blue. Hmm, what do I have in my stash that will coordinate?

Turns out, I have some solids that could work, and a blue print I picked up in Paducah in April.

Heart Builders requests a six-week turn around time so I have until roughly the end of July to get a top pieced and sent back. I guess I'd better get busy and design something so I can start making it. I'm thinking something with triangles or flying geese, maybe something Western-ish. Time to start playing in EQ.

  1. I used that western print for a friend's baby quilt a few years ago. You have some great fabrics that coordinate nicely with it!

  2. Beautiful fabric for such a great project.

  3. The blue in that print really sings! I look forward to seeing what you do.

  4. I really like that Western print! You found some great coordinates to play along with it. I wanted to continue working with Heart Builders, but it's just too difficult with my travel schedule. That's OK, there are lots of great charitable quilting groups around. I'm glad you've reconnected with HB! :)

  5. That's a fun challenge. Looking forward to seeing what comes out of your little pile of fabrics.
