Mary Johnson is one of the most creative and generous people that I know. Even though I have never actually met her, I've learned much about Mary's passion for quilting and for helping people from her blog.
She works tirelessly for the Heart Strings Project by long arm quilting and by piecing tops for the group efforts. She also maintains the group blog and prepares online patterns so others can use their scraps to create blocks for the Heart Strings Project.
Several weeks ago, while tidying my sewing room, I decided to ask Mary if she would use some backings for the Heart Strings Project, and she gave me an enthusiastic, "Yes." This was the answer I was hoping to hear because I had a lot of yardage I knew I would never use.
The fourteen backings, pictured above, are on their way to Mary and the Heart Strings Project. If you want to help in any way, I doubt that Mary will turn you down.
