The Jimmy Beans Mystery Sew Red Sew-a-long for women’s heart health awareness has started!
Mary and I were asked to participate in this event last Quilt Market and we were so excited!
I love mysteries, especially ones dedicated to such a great cause!

Heart felt thanks to you sis! Get it … “heart” felt.
The hop will run thru April 2014 and the folks at Jimmy Beans Wool will assemble and finish the master quilt. At this time they will also accept donated finished quilts from Mystery Sew Red Sew-a-long participants. From June 2014 through February 2015 all of the quilts will go on a tour throughout the United States and will be featured at quilts shows around the country. In February 2015 the master quilt will be auctioned off and the other quilts will be donated to hospitals that focus on heart disease.
For additional information and questions contact firstname.lastname@example.org or scroll down to their post on August 21st. They will release more hints about the finished size of the quilt and other particulars as the event unfolds. After all, this is a mystery! No one will know what the finished quilt will look like until the very end.
Don’t forget about the book they did for heart health awareness …
Some of the same designers that featured projects in the book are participating in the Mystery Sew Red Sew-a-long!
So jump in today! You will be helping to raise awareness of the #1 killer of women in the United States and get some fun quilt blocks! We’re all about free quilt blocks for a great cause!
