Friendship Quilts

Early in the year,11 friends from our Wednesday Club Quilting group, which is as you know held at Quilters Haven  decided to make a friendship quilt. We chose a line of fabric called Olivia from QH.We each had to make 12 blocks all the same and 
that was the boring bit.

 A date was set when your 12 blocks were to be finished, and all  blocks were duly swapped. So we ended up with 11 different blocks and an extra one of our own. Now we had till December to sew them all together however we wished.

Alison's  Quilt

 Lap quilts , table toppers, bed throws etc were all duly put together in secret at home , and the great reveal was at our end of year party. This is just a few of them. Some were not quite finished and I don't have photos of all of them, sorry girls. 

My Quilt

This was great fun to do and I for one love my quilt, and shall cuddle up under it often. As I look at each block I think fondly of the friends that made it.

Our next years project will be a lot easier.We have decided to make only one 12" block each and the theme is Stars, the fabric to be used is scraps from this years friendship quilts, (my we are being green.) 
I think we have till Easter , and then some one will be nominated to sew it together.
 It will then go to  the Linus Charity.

Keep safe and keep stitching........ Doti
