Heart Healthy Charity Quilt

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.
