http://heartstringsquiltproject.blogspot.com/2007/07/heartstrings-challenge-365-blocks.html

This is a great project for your scrap strips, and the directions sound just like the Table Runner we made in our first Chat Class (but without the batting) !

Also, I think this challenge includes all of the UK, so Maxies2 and enola05 can jump in too. Hint Hint!

Be sure to go to this link, and then click on the Block Guidelines link to get the specifics!

Below I have pasted the list of organizations the quilts have been donated to so far. I doubt you will find any you know of missing from this list!
