The softer side of HeartStrings

Many of the HeartStrings quilts are bold and bright - certainly the group quilts that have the red or blue center strings tend to be - but choosing pastel fabrics makes a softer, sweeter quilt.

Jan in CO recently finished this quilt which is being donated to the breast cancer support group at her local hospital.

Another example is this Roman Stripes pieced by Helen in VA (quilted by Mary) using 30's fabrics - also going to a woman with breast cancer.

These string quilts are just SO versatile. Love the softer versions - pretty, pretty, pretty :)
