Tying a HeartStrings Quilt

While most of our HeartStrings quilts are quilted by volunteers there's another way to finish these quilts. Tying was a traditional way to finish string quilts and is still a wonderful way to finish HeartStrings quilts.

While the quilt is delightful, I absolutely LOVE the hands in this photo. They tell a story even beyond the quilt. 8-)))
