My students at school helped to create “Heart Healthy” quilt blocks after learning hands only CPR from Legacy Emmanuel and Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue staff. I put the blocks together in a colorful quilt which was donated to the new Meridian Park Cardiac Rehab facility as a thank you to their staff and as encouragement to their patients.
This was my first time creating a quilt with drawings. We used fabric markers and crayons, which were heat set onto the muslin blocks. I had taped out the area so all blocks looked uniform in size. The piano key border was done by a parent at the school and the great long-arm quilting was done by the staff at Sharon’s Quilt Attic. The batting was even donated thanks to the Warm and Soft Company.
